The Tele-Actor and Collaborative Tele-Experience

Ken Goldberg and Dana Plautz

This talk presents new results for online robots collaboratively controlled by many users. The Tele-Actor is a system that combines a human agent with Internetbased distributed audience control. I’ll describe a new "unsupervised scoring" algorithm that rewards active participation in the system, and a formal model of collaborative control that is robust to disturbances such as drop-outs, randomness, time-delay, and malicious audience behavior. This model suggests insight into the empirical success of audience participation systems such as Cinematrix.
