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 ...
Human-robot sensor interface for cardiac rehabilitation.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world. A program of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is related to physical activities or exercises to regain the optimal quality of life. CR relies on the necessity ...
Architecture for a Social Assistive Robot in Cardiac Rehabilitation
© 2018 IEEE. Social robots are demonstrating to have potential in several healthcare applications, especially in rehabilitation areas. This paper presents an architecture for a socially assistive robot system for cardiac ...
Social Assistive Robot for Cardiac Rehabilitation: A Pilot Study with Patients with Angioplasty
© 2018 Authors. Socially Assistive Robots (SAR) have been gaining significant attention in multiple health care applications. However, SAR has not been fully explored in cardiac rehabilitation (CR). One of the most critical ...
Grounding Action Words in the Sensorimotor Interaction with the World: Experiments with a Simulated iCub Humanoid Robot.
This paper presents a cognitive robotics model for the study of the embodied representation of action words. The present research will present how an iCub humanoid robot can learn the meaning of action words (i.e. words ...
Embodied Language Learning and Cognitive Bootstrapping: Methods and Design Principles
© 2016 Author(s). Co-development of action, conceptualization and social interaction mutually scaffold and support each other within a virtuous feedback cycle in the development of human language in children. Within this ...
