This paper presents a humanoid computer interface (Jeremiah) that is capable of extracting moving objects from a video stream and responding by directing the gaze of an animated head toward it. It further responds through change of expression reflecting the emotional state of the system as a response to stimuli. As such, the system exhibits similar behavior to a child. The system was originally designed as a robust visual tracking system capable of performing accurately and consistently within a real world visual surveillance arena. As such, it provides a system capable of operating reliably in any environment both indoor and outdoor. Originally designed as a public interface to promote computer vision and the public understanding of science (exhibited in British Science Museum), Jeremiah provides the first step to a new form of intuitive computer interface.
