The overarching goal of the FaceBots project is to support the achievement of sustainable long-term human-robot relationships through the creation of robots with face recognition and natural language capabilities, which exploit and publish online information, and especially social information available on Facebook, and which achieve two significant novelties. The underlying experimental hypothesis is that such relationships can be significantly enhanced if the human and the robot are gradually…

On the Synergies between Online Social Networking, Face Recognition and Interactive Robotics
TLDR
This system is the first interactive conversational mobile robot that utilizes and publishes social information in facebook, and is also the first system utilizing the social context of conjectured identities in a photo for better face recognition.
Enhancing the robot service experience through social media
TLDR
The problems of reliable human-robot communications and efficiency of service delivery and the potential for the robot to learn and build long-term relationships through access to these social mediums are addressed.
Robot learning through social media crowdsourcing

TLDR
This paper investigates the use of social media crowdsourcing to allow a robot to access the vast information gathering resources available on Twitter.
Extending Human–Robot Relationships Based in Music With Virtual Presence
TLDR
The effects of extending the relationship into the virtual world were less pronounced than results found by adding social modalities to human–robot musical interaction, and interesting questions are raised about the interpretation of the automated behavioral metrics across different contexts.
Social networking sites photos and robots: a pilot research on facebook photo albums and robotics interfaces for older adults
TLDR
The study found that the type of interface interaction with the social media tool affect the perception of the older adults in usefulness, ease of use, easing of learning and satisfaction: the elderly adults perceived the Facebook photo albums tool more useful, easy to use,easy to learn and felt more satisfied during the contact with the robotic interface supported by the agent.
A truly human interface: interacting face-to-face with someone whose words are determined by a computer program
TLDR
This work uses speech shadowing to create situations wherein people converse in person with a human whose words are determined by a conversational agent computer program and reports three studies that investigated people’s experiences interacting with echoborgs and the extent to which echOBorgs pass as autonomous humans.
Development of a dialog system for interaction with robots
TLDR
A base system was created that is flexible enough to explore different contexts of conversation, such as interacting with children or providing information on a university environment, and that functions as a flexible base for the creation of any conversational scenario in the Portuguese language.
Bonding with BlockBot: a field exploration of the effect of common locus on human-robot bonding
The increased presence of robots in human-inhabited environments provide a new frontier in the research of human-robot interaction. Currently, we lack a comprehensive understanding of how humans make

Interactive Robots as Social Partners and Peer Tutors for Children: A Field Trial
TLDR
The proposition that robots could form relationships with children and that children might learn from robots as they learn from other children is examined, and results suggest that interactive robots should be designed to have something in common with their users, providing a social as well as technical challenge.
Multimodal Conversation between a Humanoid Robot and Multiple Persons
TLDR
This paper proposes an approach that maintains a probabilistic belief about people in the surroundings of the robot, using this belief, the robot is able to memorize people even if they are currently outside its limited field of view.
Friends with Faces: How Social Networks Can Enhance Face Recognition and Vice Versa
TLDR
Using real-world data gathered from “ Facebook,” the world’s first physical face-recognizing and conversing robot that can utilize and publish information on “Facebook” was established and methods for utilizing this correlation are given.
Maggie: A Robotic Platform for Human-Robot Social Interaction
TLDR
Maggie, a robotic platform developed at RoboticsLab for research on human-robot social interaction is presented and the different developed interaction modules are described.
Transforming IbnSina into an advanced multilingual interactive android robot
TLDR
Extensions carried out to IbnSina's software architecture were: access to online and stored content for dialogue generation, basic multilingual capability exploration, basic read-aloud-text capability, and systematization of motor control.
A Two-Month Field Trial in an Elementary School for Long-Term Human–Robot Interaction
TLDR
A mechanism for two social communication abilities: forming long-term relationships and estimating friendly relationships among people is proposed and the results demonstrate the potential of current interactive robots to establish social relationships with humans in the authors' daily lives.
Social Interaction of Humanoid RobotBased on Audio-Visual Tracking
TLDR
The system demonstrates non-verbal social interaction by realizing a receptionist robot by focusing on an associated stream, while a companion robot on an auditory stream using Focus-of-attention, which is programmable and allows a variety of behaviors.
Enabling a Humanoid Robot to Interact with Multiple Persons
TLDR
This work proposes an approach that maintains a probabilistic belief about people in the surroundings of the robot which is updated based on sensory information, and is able to memorize people even if they are currently outside its limited eld of view.
