Gracefully Mitigating Communication Protocol Reuse Breakdowns

In our current research, we assessed the feasibility of integrating a dual coded robot’s feedback. Dual coded feedback consists of the robot combining it visible behaviors (e.g.: the robot’s movement) with auditory icons which we refer to as Inarticulate Utterances (IUs). In our study, we investigate whether using dual coded robot’s feedback during the HumanRobot Interaction (HRI) may help maintaining the rules of interaction (protocol) that are previously established in an adaptive way between…

that the robot had complex perception and reasoning skills equivalent to a child and that robots were subservient to humans. Although the laws were simple and few, the stories attempted to

Exploring Miscommunication and Collaborative Behaviour in Human-Robot Interaction

The methods and results of two WOz studies, in which dyads of naive participants interacted in a collaborative task, are described, which provide insights for the development of human-inspired and robust natural language interfaces in robots.

Toward an argumentation-based dialogue framework for human-robot collaboration

The proposed research aims to design and implement a logic-based dialogue framework grounded on argumentation theory to address the "what to say" problem of human robot communication during a collaborative task.

This paper identifies three types of questions (label, demonstration and feature queries) and discusses how a robot can use these while learning new skills and provides guidelines for designing question asking behaviors on a robot learner.

Training a Robot via Human Feedback: A Case Study

This work provides the first demonstration of the ability to train multiple behaviors by such feedback without algorithmic modifications and of a robot learning from free-form human-generated feedback without any further guidance or evaluative feedback.

Are computers scapegoats? Attributions of responsibility in human-computer interaction

This study investigated how people make attributions of responsibility when interacting with computers and predicted similarity between a user's personality and a computer's personality would reduce the tendency for users to exhibit a “self-serving bias” in assigning responsibility for outcomes in human?computer interaction.

An emotional adaption approach to increase helpfulness towards a robot

A new methodological approach and robot system to trigger more prosocial human reactions towards a robot by transferring social-psychological principles from human-human interaction to human-robot interaction (HRI).

Establishing and maintaining long-term human-computer relationships

The meaning of “human-computer relationship” is investigated and techniques for constructing, maintaining, and evaluating such relationships are presented, based on research in social psychology, sociolinguistics, communication and other social sciences.
