Eliciting caregiving behavior in dyadic human-robot attachment-like interactions

Antoine Hiolle, Lola Cañamero, Marina Davila-Ross, Kim A. Bard
2012 ACM transactions on interactive intelligent systems (TiiS)  
In a second experiment, we tested how human adults behaved in a similar setup with two different robots: one needy, often demanding attention, and one more independent, requesting far less care or assistance  ...  In the first setting, we show that such a robotic architecture allows the human caregiver to influence greatly the learning outcomes of the exploration episode, with some similarities to a primary caregiver  ...  The views expressed in this paper are those of the authors, and not necessarily those of the consortium.  ...

Autonomous Systems -- An Architectural Characterization [article]

Joseph Sifakis
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The concept of autonomy is key to the IoT vision promising increasing integration of smart services and systems minimizing human intervention.  ...  Machine learning is essential for autonomy although it can meet only a small portion of the needs implied by autonomous system design. We conclude that autonomy is a kind of broad intelligence.  ...  What is the difference between a thermostat, an automatic train shuttle, a chess-playing robot, a soccer-playing robot and a robocar?  ...
