Understanding users! Perception of privacy in human-robot interaction

2011 6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), 2011

Previous research has shown that design features that support privacy are essential for new technologies looking to gain widespread adoption. As such, privacy-sensitive design will be important for the adoption of social robots, as they could introduce new types of privacy risks to users. In this paper, we report findings from our preliminary study on users' perceptions and attitudes toward ...


From Interaction Science to Cognitive Interaction Technology

2014 9th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), 2014

A cascade of revolutions has transformed robotics into a new science that begins to link physical concepts of control and interaction with qualities and concepts analyzed so far mainly in disciplines such as psychology, biology, linguistics or the social sciences. A visible manifestation of this transformation is the rapid evolution of robot body morphologies within the last decade: robots with ...


Robot gesture and user acceptance of information in human-robot interaction

2012 7th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), 2012

This study explores how human users respond to coordinated and uncoordinated gestures of a robot as an information deliverer. A between-subject experiment was conducted using the Wizard of Oz method, with 63 participants randomly assigned to one of four conditions (voice-only vs. no-gesture vs. coordinated gesture vs. uncoordinated gesture) taking an artwork class in a museum-like setting. The robot was ...


Implementing human questioning strategies into quizzing-robot

2012 7th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), 2012

From our ethnographic studies on various kinds of museums, we discovered that guides routinely propose questions to visitors in order to draw their attention towards both his/her explanation and the exhibit. The guides' question sequences tend to begin with a pre-question which serves to not only monitor visitors' behavior and responses, but to also alert visitors that a primary question ...


Lifespan Design of Conversational Agent with Growth and Regression Metaphor for the Natural Supervision on Robot Intelligence

2019 14th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), 2019

Human's direct supervision on robot's erroneous behavior is crucial to enhance a robot intelligence for a `flawless' human-robot interaction. Motivating humans to engage more actively for this purpose is however difficult. To alleviate such strain, this research proposes a novel approach, a growth and regression metaphoric interaction design inspired from human's communicative, intellectual, social competence aspect of developmental stages. We ...

  • From Interaction Science to Cognitive Interaction Technology

    A cascade of revolutions has transformed robotics into a new science that begins to link physical concepts of control and interaction with qualities and concepts analyzed so far mainly in disciplines such as psychology, biology, linguistics or the social sciences. A visible manifestation of this transformation is the rapid evolution of robot body morphologies within the last decade: robots with different degrees of humanoid appearance -ranging from a coarse analogy of humanoid body structure to amazingly detailed replications of human appearance-are now being developed in numerous labs and not few of them have become commercially available. This has completely reshaped the interface between robots and people: expressive faces require a rethinking of the way robots and humans can interact. Human-like hands offer new levels of interaction provided we can find ways to coordinate their rich degrees of freedom to bring their skills closer to what we see in humans. And progress in processing power, storage density and sensing technologies allows to create and maintain rich representations to cope with contact at all levels from the physical to the social, thereby turning robots from the “contact minimizers” of the past into interactive agents that can assist people in natural ways and in natural environments. These developments have shaped much of CITEC's vision of cognitive interaction technology and the associated research agenda along the four topic pillars of motion intelligence, attentive systems, situated communication, and memory and learning. We describe some of the underlying methodology and how we have mapped it into a dedicated lab infrastructure to investigate cognitive interaction processes across a wide spectrum of spatial and temporal scales. We present selected examples of cognitive interaction that are in the focus of major CITEC research lines: the Bielefeld expressive robot head Flobi that offers a versatile platform to find new ways to make human robot interaction more natural and to enrich it with new layers of usefulness; the advancement of touch as the modality where social and physical contact come together, for instance, through sensors that are more skin-like and ways of how to use such sensors for haptic exploration of surfaces or as research tools for studying human haptics; and interdisciplinary work towards a deeper understanding of “manual intelligence” and its replication in bimanual robots to enable them to flexibly manipulate everyday objects and to cooperate more naturally with people. Finally, we report on the status of the newly started project FAMULA that connects 10 CITEC groups to study and replicate the process of familiarization with novel objects through combined use of embodied manipulation and language. Turning to the perspectives of our field into the future, we argue that we can take inspiration from the systematic elucidation of principles and mechanisms of interaction that enabled physics to advance to a new level. Taking guidance from this success story may put us on a similarly grand path: creating a science for elucidating the inner workings of cognitive interaction that arises when we take the step from physical particles to cognitive agents and using our insights to create better bridges between humans and tomorrow's technology.

  • Robot gesture and user acceptance of information in human-robot interaction

    This study explores how human users respond to coordinated and uncoordinated gestures of a robot as an information deliverer. A between-subject experiment was conducted using the Wizard of Oz method, with 63 participants randomly assigned to one of four conditions (voice-only vs. no-gesture vs. coordinated gesture vs. uncoordinated gesture) taking an artwork class in a museum-like setting. The robot was explaining the information of the artworks with modalities accordingly designed to each condition. Results showed that the coordinated gesture was not aiding information delivery. However, there were notable relations between the coordinated ge sture and intimacy, homogeneity, and involvement. These results have theoretical implications for cognitive load of working memory and practical implications for designing and deploying dynamic humanoid robots for museum tour guide.

  • Implementing human questioning strategies into quizzing-robot

    From our ethnographic studies on various kinds of museums, we discovered that guides routinely propose questions to visitors in order to draw their attention towards both his/her explanation and the exhibit. The guides' question sequences tend to begin with a pre-question which serves to not only monitor visitors' behavior and responses, but to also alert visitors that a primary question would follow. We implemented this questioning-strategy with our robot system and investigated whether this strategy would also work in human-robot interaction. We developed a vision system that enables the robot to choose an appropriate visitor by monitoring a visitor's response from the initiation of a pre-question to the following pause. Results indicate that this questioning-strategy works effectively in human-robot interaction. In this experiment, the robot asked visitors about a photograph. At the pre- question, the robot delivered a rather easy question followed by a more challenging question (Figure 1). More participants turned their head away from the exhibition when they were not sure about their answer to the question. They either faced away from the robot, or smiled wryly at the robot or at each other. These types of behaviors index participants' states of knowledge, which we could utilize to develop a system by which the robot could choose an appropriate candidate by computational recognition.

  • Lifespan Design of Conversational Agent with Growth and Regression Metaphor for the Natural Supervision on Robot Intelligence

    Human's direct supervision on robot's erroneous behavior is crucial to enhance a robot intelligence for a `flawless' human-robot interaction. Motivating humans to engage more actively for this purpose is however difficult. To alleviate such strain, this research proposes a novel approach, a growth and regression metaphoric interaction design inspired from human's communicative, intellectual, social competence aspect of developmental stages. We implemented the interaction design principle unto a conversational agent combined with a set of synthetic sensors. Within this context, we aim to show that the agent successfully encourages the online labeling activity in response to the faulty behavior of robots as a supervision process. The field study is going to be conducted to evaluate the efficacy of our proposal by measuring the annotation performance of real-time activity events in the wild. We expect to provide a more effective and practical means to supervise robot by real-time data labeling process for long-term usage in the human-robot interaction.

  • Integration of work sequence and embodied interaction for collaborative work based human-robot interaction

    In order to develop intelligent robots that are able to cooperate well with human in a collaborative work, this work aims to integrate work sequence and embodied interaction capabilities into an integrated intelligence system for collaborative robot development. A task modeling approach is proposed to build a hierarchical task model of the entire work sequence to generate state transition table, and grounding with the actual condition (state) of the objects and the action (transition) of work in the embodied dimension. The system is implemented in a simulation environment with human interaction to materialize human-robot collaboration by robot work support in work sequence (what, when and how), assist on parallel task, and error correction.

  • Of Robots, Humans, Bodies and Intelligence: Body Languages for Human Robot Interaction

    Modern approaches to the design of robots with increasing amounts of embodied intelligence affect human-robot interaction paradigms. The physical structure of robots is evolving from traditional rigid, heavy industrial machines into soft bodies exhibiting new levels of versatility, adaptability, safety, elasticity, dynamism and energy efficiency. New challenges and opportunities arise for the control of soft robots: for instance, carefully planning for collision avoidance may no longer be a dominating concern, being on the contrary physical interaction with the environment not only allowed, but even desirable to solve complex tasks. To address these challenges, it is often useful to look at how humans use their own bodies in similar tasks, and even in some cases have a direct dialogue between the natural and artificial counterparts.

  • Behavioral Analysis of a Touch-Based Interaction between Humans and an Egg-shaped Robot According to Protrusions

    For a service robot, touch is one of the major interaction components. However, because many robot designs and touch sensor arrangements are designed by a company, actual user interactions do not match the implemented sensors in the robot. So it is necessary to investigate practical human touch patterns without advanced user knowledge of the robot's touch sensor. This study seeks to measure the influence of pointed and smooth-shaped protrusion types on touch interactions with an egg-shaped robot. Based on the results, a pointed protrusion creates distributed touch interaction while a smooth-shaped protrusion concentrates touch interaction.

  • Validating interaction patterns in HRI

    In recent work, ¿interaction patterns¿ have been proposed as a means to characterize essential features of human-robot interaction. A problem arises, however, in knowing whether the interaction patterns generated are valid. The same problem arises when researchers in HRI propose other broad conceptualizations that seek to structure social interaction. In this paper, we address this general problem by distinguishing three ways of establishing the validity of interaction patterns. The first form of validity seeks to establish whether the conclusions about interaction patterns are warranted from the data. The second seeks to establish whether the interaction patterns account for the data. And the third seeks to provide sound reasons for the labels of the patterns themselves. Often these three forms of validity are confused in discussions about conceptual categories in HRI.

  • The effect of multiple robot interaction on human-robot interaction

    A variety of interaction models among agents have been developed, however the research about human attitude toward multiple robot interaction has been out of research focus. While a service robot interacts with more human users, multi-robots interact with humans and even with other robots. In the environment, the interactive behavior of human is affected by multiple robotic interactions. This paper focuses on the effects of multiple robot interaction on human behaviors. Specifically, we define four factors associated with human interaction such as human favorability, attention shift, human-friendly knowledge sharing, and indirect realization of agent status. The experiments are designed to verify these factors, of which the effect and result are discussed.
