Natural language is stupid

so teach robots some simple artificial ones

Thus far, the robotrooper tech can recognise such standard hand/arm signals as “follow,” “halt,” “wait” and – of course – “door breach”. It would seem only a matter of time until more advanced concepts like “root out cowering meatsacks” or “terminate the first born male child in every family” can be conveyed.

From this to a subset of ASL isn’t particularly far (researchers ahve done a fair amount of the work already), and that would be darn useful for a robot.
