Human-Like Motion Planning Based on Game Theoretic Decision Making

Annemarie Turnwald, Dirk Wollherr
2018 International Journal of Social Robotics  
Noncooperative games and the concept of a Nash equilibrium are used to formulate the decision process that describes human motion behavior while walking in a populated environment.  ...  The results of both studies coincide and show that the participants could not distinguish between human motion behavior and our artificial behavior based on game theory.  ...  Interaction awareness is a key factor in human-like navigation and leads to conditionally cooperative behavior and mutual avoidance maneuvers.  ...

2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference extended abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems Extended Abstracts - CHI EA '12  
Expressing the confidence level of a system's suggestions by using speech sounds is an important cue to users of the system for perceiving how likely it is for the suggestions to be correct.  ...  We assume that expressing the levels of confidence using human-like expressions will cause users to have a poorer impression of a system than if artificial subtle expressions (ASEs) were used when the  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by KAKENHI (23700248) as Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists (B) by The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan, and by joint  ...

Nathan Tsoi, Mohamed Hussein, Olivia Fugikawa, J.D. Zhao, Marynel Vázquez
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Our results suggest that human perceptions of robots may differ based on whether they interact with the robots in simulation or observe them in videos.  ...  Also, they suggest that people perceive the surveys with interactive simulations as less mentally demanding than video surveys.  ...  Navigation Behavior. Using ROS logs from SEAN, we checked how often the human's avatar and the robot were close to each other based on Hall's proxemic zones [54] .  ...

Just a Game? Unjustified Virtual Violence Produces Guilt in Empathetic Players

Tilo Hartmann, Erhan Toz, Marvin Brandon
2010 Media Psychology  
Many avid gamers discount violent conduct in video games as morally insignificant as "it is just a game".  ...  These results show that video games are capable of inducing affective moral responses in users. Accordingly, virtual violence may be considered morally significant action.  ...  In other words, faceless or fungible opponents are likely to be perceived as objects rather than unique human beings.  ...
