Data is a "Nao" robot, a sort of high-tech blank slate made by the French robotics firm Aldebaran and used primarily for research and education (Nao robots are also the players of choice in the international RoboCup soccer league). Ms. Knight worked for Aldebaran after completing her undergraduate degree at MIT and helped to develop the touch-activated sensor on the robot's head. Now she writes complex behavioral programs for Data through an Aldebaran software called Choregraphe.

This is something I want to remember to come back to later...
ROS is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot. It provides the services you would expect from an operating system, including hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management.
