When a robot interacts with users in public spaces, it receives various sounds, such as surrounding noises and users' voices, and furthermore needs to interact with multiple people at the same time. In this paper, we present a machine learning-based method to estimate a response obligation, i.e., whether an input sound should be responded to by the robot or not. This enables the robot to reject not only noises but also monologues and user utterances toward other users. Our proposed method uses… CONTINUE READING
