Description:


    The primary motivation of everyday conversation is not always to convey messages to others, but rather to reinforce social bonding and coordinate social distance. Muu, an artificial creature with a humorous physical body, was developed to create social bonding with humans. The creature also works as an embodied interface that mediates the social bonding that people establish in everyday conversations. The mechanism that coordinates the machine-human relationship is implemented using the self-referencing learning classifier system.
