Various sensory input channels are also needed for
http://www.geocities.com/mentifex/mind4th.html Robot AI.

Mind.Forth is almost ready for distribution as a "teaching AI"
with a tutorial mode among its human-computer interfaces (HCI).

Mind.Forth can already think, but it only knows what you tell it
verbally about things, as the AI accumulates a knowledge base (KB).

Even a simple sensory input channel would begin to give Mind.Forth
concrete knowledge of the linguistic concepts that it manipulates.
Therefore please post links in this thread to even the most exotic
sensory input devices that can be attached to a robot while feeding
data into an associative Forth memory array that integrates each new
robot sensory modality with the primitive brain of the Forthmind.

Forth is the lingua franca of AI, embedded NC and robotics.
For details on Mind.Forth and the public domain AI project,
see the ACM Sigplan Notices 33(12):25-31 (December 1998),
"Mind.Forth: Thoughts on Artificial Intelligence and Forth."
