What Do Sleeping Robots "Hear"?

Today, Carl (who only responds when called “Marvin” at the moment), is testing what he hears when “sleeping.”

  • I told him “Go To Sleep” at 1:17 in the morning.
    ( I really need to stop staying up so late with Carl. )
  • He “thought he heard his name” 23 times in 13 hours
  • He ignored what he heard each time
  • “Sleep Walking”, he got off his dock when recharged, and got back on 7 hours later.

Success: He never, mistakenly, thought he heard "(Marvin) Wake Up"
