Personalization is a well-known process that plays a role in product or interface design, and consumer psychology. The adaptation of both appearance and functionalities of a technology or a service to users’ preferences and needs has gained prevalence, even in the context of social robots. However, while the technical advances that enable the personalization of … Continue reading Personalization and customization: what if the role of the user in the adaptation changes how we perceive and interact with robots?
Let’s start with what is Neuromorphic Computing and why all of a sudden researchers are getting attracted to it? So far, many computing techniques are implemented for different general/ specific applications, but energy efficiency is still a major issue in every computation. Especially in the case of training a neural network where data might contain … Continue reading Neuromorphic Computing for Real-Time Human-Robot Interaction
While many researchers study computer vision, natural language processing, or robotics, we are mainly interested in the intersection of these three domains. Specifically, we are interested in Vision and Language Navigation (VLN). For an agent or a robot to perform VLN, it can perceive the 360-degree view of the environment and is given human instructions … Continue reading Bring me there: An Instruction Generation Approach for Vision and Language Navigation
Theory of Mind or ToM was always a topic studied by psychological researchers to understand how the infants’ cognitive process is developed. There were first mentioned at the end of the seventies Premack and Woodruff (1978), who referred to ToM as the ability to imputer mental states to self and others, including desires, knowledge, beliefs, … Continue reading ESR 8 – Theory of Mind for personalised interaction
