Trust in human-robot interaction: A measurement issue that stems from a theoretical gap?

Trust is probably one of the most complicated construct I have ever faced as a psychologist. It is this kind of phenomenon that everyone experiences on a daily basis, and can identify properly when experiencing it, which yet remains difficult to grasp scientifically. What is trust exactly? Where does it come from? How does it … Continue reading Trust in human-robot interaction: A measurement issue that stems from a theoretical gap?

INFLUENCE OF KINESTHETIC TEACHING (KT) ON HUMAN-ROBOT INTERACTION

Nowadays, robots are increasingly integrated into our daily life, from industrial Human-Robot collaboration settings (Matheson et al., 2019) to robots assigned to household chores or companion robots that are expected to emotionally and cognitively understand and interact with their users. They are transitioning from being seen as simple tools to being seen as interactive collaborators. … Continue reading INFLUENCE OF KINESTHETIC TEACHING (KT) ON HUMAN-ROBOT INTERACTION

The Path to Transparent Human-Robot Collaboration

In an age where robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are increasingly becoming a part of our daily lives, the quest for seamless human-robot interaction (HRI) has taken centre stage. The essence of this journey lies not just in enhancing the physical prowess of robots but in bridging the communication divide, enabling these machines to interact … Continue reading The Path to Transparent Human-Robot Collaboration

Robot autonomy and user involvement, the two key facets of robot adaptation?

In my first article in the blog from PERSEO project, I have introduced my project distinguishing personalization from customization. As a reminder, personalization is a system-driven sort of adaptation where the robot autonomously adapts to its user. Customization is a user-driven adaptation process where the user adapts the robot to their own preferences and needs. … Continue reading Robot autonomy and user involvement, the two key facets of robot adaptation?

Anticipating the Future: How AI Can Revolutionize Human-Robot Collaboration

In our ever-evolving world, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into our daily lives continues to shape our future. One fascinating area of AI research is Long-Term Action Anticipation, a concept that has the potential to enhance human-robot collaboration for better proactive robot behavior. Imagine a world where robots not only understand what we're doing … Continue reading Anticipating the Future: How AI Can Revolutionize Human-Robot Collaboration

Unlocking the future of human-robot collaboration: understanding human intentions

In recent years, research in robotics has made remarkable strides, capturing our imaginations with the promise of machines working alongside humans to enhance our daily lives. One of the key advancements that is driving this innovation is Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), a field dedicated to improving the way robots assist us in various tasks. But what's … Continue reading Unlocking the future of human-robot collaboration: understanding human intentions

Societies are evolving, and robots too.

Modern societies have spun the technology wheel at impressive velocities in the last decades. We dismissed cabled phones and noisy 56k modems in my opinion without proper grief. There was always a new, shiny object to replace the old one. New functionalities, new features and improved hardware led technology closer to normal people. The underline … Continue reading Societies are evolving, and robots too.

ESR 3 – Interactive kinesthetic teaching for conditional tasks

More and more service robots are being developed to be used in houses or in medical faculties to help people with disabilities. Such robots need to be coded by people that are not experts in robotics but experts in other fields such as the medical fields, or even by the end-users themselves.  For this is … Continue reading ESR 3 – Interactive kinesthetic teaching for conditional tasks

Learning social skills continuously like human

Social learning is the hallmark of human intelligence, allowing the human to rapidly adapt to new scenarios, learn new tasks and communicate knowledge that can be built on by others in a continuous setting. While new knowledge plays a role in its accumulation, it also supplements and revises previous knowledge to prevent the human from … Continue reading Learning social skills continuously like human
