Grace, the robot

Here are pictures of Grace, the robot that tried to meet the robot challenge at AAAI 2002, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Although she had a hard time finding her way in the huge (and unexpected) crowds at the convention center, Grace won two judges awards in the challenge, made international news, and was mentioned on CNN and in the New York Times. The guy in the pictures talking to Grace with the headset and PDA is Matt McMahon, a grad student in the UTCS robotics lab.
