Learning ROILA

We are proud to announce that our book Learning ROILA has been published and is now available as a paperback from In addition, you can purchase a Kindle Edition and an ePub Edition. This book has been made possible with the support of NZILBB and HIT Lab NZ.

The RObot Interaction Language (ROILA) is a new spoken language that is optimized for the communication between machines and humans. It is extremely easy to learn for humans and it is simple for machines to recognize. The goal of this book is to support humans learning ROILA.

Here is the video recording of Omar’s PhD defense that took place on June 1st in Eindhoven. We apologize for the bad quality of the video which is mainly due to the dark lighting of the room.
