Core Elements of Social Interaction for Constructive Human-Robot Interaction

  title={Core Elements of Social Interaction for Constructive Human-Robot Interaction},
  author={Mike Ligthart and Mark A. Neerincx and Koen V. Hindriks},
We present a discovery-based, first version, explicit model of social interaction that provides a basis for measuring the quality of interaction of a human user with a social robot. The two core elements of the social interaction model are engagement and co-regulation. Engagement emphasizes the qualitative nature of social interaction and the fact that a user needs to be drawn into the interaction with the robot. Co-regulation emphasizes the interaction process and the fact that a user and a…

Engagement Perception and Generation for Social Robots and Virtual Agents
This chapter discusses the different stages and components of engagement that have been suggested in the literature from the applied perspective of a case study of engagement for social robotics, as well as in the context of another study that was focused on gaze-related engagement with virtual characters.
Expectation management in child-robot interaction
Three strategies that have to be worked out for the management of expectations in child-robot interaction are proposed: be aware of and analyze children's expectations, educate children, and acknowledge robots are a new kind of ‘living’ entity besides humans and animals that the authors need to make responsible for managing expectations.
A survey of socially interactive robots
Can social interaction constitute social cognition?
The Art of Designing Socially Intelligent Agents: Science, Fiction, and the Human in the Loop
In this article, socially intelligent agents (SIAs) are understood to be agents that do not only from an observer point of view behave socially but that are able to recognize and identify other
A Child and a Robot Getting Acquainted - Interaction Design for Eliciting Self-Disclosure
The foundation, the rationale, and the evaluation of the design for an autonomous robot conversational partner that engages with Dutch children in a getting acquainted interaction to elicit children to self-disclosure are discussed.
Defining socially assistive robotics
This paper defines the research area of socially assistive robotics, focusing on assisting people through social interaction. While much attention has been paid to robots that provide assistance to
Getting Acquainted for a Long-Term Child-Robot Interaction
Whether the children successfully got acquainted with the robot and to what extent the children bonded withThe robot is explored, with the results of a user study evaluating these patterns and robot behaviors.
Social Robotics
The implementation of a self-as-simulator architecture for mental state manipulation through physical action, combined with geometrically detailed, perspective correct simulations of the immediate future, allows the robot to choose actions which influence the human’s mental states through their visual perception.
Design Patterns for an Interactive Storytelling Robot to Support Children’s Engagement and Agency
Three interaction design patterns for an interactive storytelling experience with an autonomous social robot enable the child to make decisions about the story by talking with the robot, reenact parts of the story together with the Robot, and recording self-made sound effects to support children’s engagement and agency.
