Multimodal User Feedback During Adaptive Robot-Human Presentations

Agnes Axelsson, Gabriel Skantze
2022 Frontiers in Computer Science  
In this paper, we analyse multimodal feedback given by humans towards a robot that is presenting a piece of art in a shared environment, similar to a museum setting.  ...  An analysis of the timing of the feedback shows that most feedback is given when the robot makes pauses (and thereby invites feedback), but that the more exact timing of the feedback does not affect its  ...  Turn-taking, feedback and joint attention in situated human-robot interaction.  ...
