Behavioral Implicit Communication for Human-Robot Interaction

  title={Behavioral Implicit Communication for Human-Robot Interaction},
  author={Francesca Giardini},
In Human-Robot Interaction domain many solutions have been proposed in order to achieve a smooth and natural communication and interaction: speech and other kinds of language, as well as others human typical ways of communication, such as gestures and facial expressions. We argue that a very necessary and effective way of improving HRI, at least from a theoretical point of view, could be purposive mutual understanding, i.e. practical behaviors aimed to achieve a pragmatic goal as well as a… Expand
A theoretical perspective on social agency
  • A. Pollini
  • Sociology, Computer Science
  • 2009
Key theoretical issues are discussed in a preliminary exploration of the concept of Social Agency, which tries to understand what Social Agency is and how it is created by, negotiated with, and attributed to artificial agents. Expand
Social Intelligence Design 2007. Proceedings Sixth Workshop on Social Intelligence Design
The paper argues in favor of automated capture of awareness information and suggests that social intelligence is relevant as a design and evaluation criterion for such systems and as a mechanism for supporting users in managing the information sharing behavior of awareness systems. Expand


A Motivational System for Regulating Human-Robot Interaction
A motivational system for an autonomous robot which is designed to regulate human-robot interaction and implements drives, emotions, and facial expressions in order to engage in meaningful bi-directional social interactions with humans. Expand
Learning and interacting in human-robot domains
This work presents an approach that allows a robot to learn task representations from its own experiences of interacting with a human, and describes a generalization of the framework to allow a robots to interact with humans in order to handle unexpected situations that can occur in its task execution.

Infant-like Social Interactions between a Robot and a Human Caregiver
This paper presents a mechanism for an autonomous robot to regulate the intensity of its social interactions with a human that enables the robot to react appropriately to both social stimuli and non-social stimuli while maintaining a suitable interaction intensity. Expand
A survey of socially interactive robots
The context for socially interactive robots is discussed, emphasizing the relationship to other research fields and the different forms of “social robots”, and a taxonomy of design methods and system components used to build socially interactive Robots is presented. Expand
Recognizing and Interpreting Gestures on a Mobile Robot
This paper describes a real-time, three-dimensional gesture recognition system that resides on-board a mobile robot, capable of recognizing six distinct gestures made by an unadorned human in an unaltered environment, including the coarse model and the active vision approach. Expand

Publisher Summary Strong correspondences have been found between symbol development in play and language in three aspects: (1) correlations in frequency and rate, (2) overlap in referential content,Expand
Social and collaborative aspects of interaction with a service robot
To an increasing extent, robots are being designed to become a part of the lives of ordinary people. This calls for new models of the interaction between humans and robots, taking advantage of humaExpand
Pragmatics of Human Communication: A Study of Interactional Patterns, Pathologies, and Paradoxes.
This book, which carries the imprint of the Mental Research Institute of Palo Alto, Calif, deals with human communication as an interaction process. The volume is divided into seven chapters and anExpand
Getting Humanoids to Move and Imitate
A behavior-based approach to structuring and controlling complex robotic systems is described that uses imitation for interaction and learning and lets humanoid robots dance the Macarena, do aerobics and throw objects. Expand
