Teaching robots social autonomy from in situ human guidance
(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2019-10-23)
<jats:p>Striking the right balance between robot autonomy and human control is a core challenge in social robotics, in both technical and ethical terms. On the one hand, extended robot autonomy offers the potential for ...
Towards Generating Spatial Referring Expressions in a Social Robot: Dynamic vs Non-Ambiguous
© 2019 IEEE. We present in this paper our work towards a new dynamic method of generating spatial referring expressions. While people are generally ambiguous in their description of locations, previous methods of artificial ...
Social Psychology and Human-Robot Interaction: An Uneasy Marriage
© 2018 ACM. The field of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) lies at the intersection of several disciplines, and is rightfully perceived as a prime interface between engineering and the social sciences. In particular, our field ...
