One of the interesting and occasionally controversial aspects of Dennett's career is his direct involvement in the scientific process. This article describes some of Dennett's participation on one particular project conducted at MIT, the building of the humanoid robot named Cog. One of the intentions of this project, not to date fully realized, was to test Dennett's multiple drafts theory of consciousness. I describe Dennett's involvement and impact on Cog from the perspective of a graduate student. I also describe the problem of coordinating distributed intelligent systems, drawing examples from robot intelligence, human intelligence, and the Cog project itself.
