2009 2009 3rd International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction and Workshops  
As humanoid robots will have to behave socially adequate in a future society, we started to investigate laughter as an important para-verbal signal influencing relationships among humans quite easily.  ...  As a first step we investigate, how humanoid robots might laugh within a situation, which is suitable for laughter.  ...  to our humanoid robots than any of the female laughters that we presented.  ...

Studying laughter in combination with two humanoid robots

Christian Becker-Asano, Takayuki Kanda, Carlos Ishi, Hiroshi Ishiguro
2010 AI & Society: The Journal of Human-Centred Systems and Machine Intelligence  
To let humanoid robots behave socially adequate in a future society, we started to explore laughter as an important para-verbal signal known to influence relationships among humans rather easily.  ...  We investigated how the naturalness of various types of laughter in combination with different humanoid robots was judged, first, within a situational context that is suitable for laughter and, second,  ...  In conclusion, we are confident that pursuing this line of research might help to improve both the sociability of humanoid robots and our knowledge about the social functions of human laughter.  ...

Interacting with Socio-emotional Agents

Catherine Pelachaud
2014 Procedia Computer Science  
We have been developing a platform of humanoid agent able to interact with humans. I will describe an interactive system of socio-emotional agent dialoging with human users.  ...  Modeling social signals When interacting with humans, agents should be capable of starting an interaction and of maintaining it (Sidner et al, 04).  ...  Other social sign, laughter We study another important social signal: laughter. As for smile, laughter has several communicative functions.  ...
