A New Theoretical Framework for Curiosity for Learning in Social Contexts [chapter]

Tanmay Sinha, Zhen Bai, Justine Cassell
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Curiosity is a vital metacognitive skill in educational contexts. Yet, little is known about how social factors influence curiosity in group work.  ...  This framework is a step towards designing learning technologies that can recognize and evoke curiosity during learning in social contexts.  ...  This is because knowledge seeking behaviors driven by curiosity not only contribute to the satisfaction of the initial desire for knowledge, but also potentially lead to further identification of new knowledge  ...

To know, to feel, to share? Exploring the motives that drive curiosity for negative content

Esther Niehoff, Suzanne Oosterwijk
2020 Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences  
Exploring the motives that drive curiosity for negative content Niehoff, E.; Oosterwijk, S.  ...  Building on these theories, we propose that curiosity for negative content may be driven by the expected reward value of an anticipated gain in information (see further [15 ] ).  ...  Motives to follow social norms or engage in social comparison may be one of many ways in which the social environment impacts curiosity in general [54] and curiosity for negative content in particular  ...

Escaping Stochastic Traps with Aleatoric Mapping Agents [article]

Augustine N. Mavor-Parker, Kimberly A. Young, Caswell Barry, Lewis D. Griffin
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We show AMAs are able to effectively circumvent action-dependent stochastic traps that immobilise conventional curiosity driven agents.  ...  Curiosity driven learning -- using feed-forward prediction errors as intrinsic rewards -- has achieved some success in these scenarios, but fails when faced with action-dependent noise sources.  ...  A notable exploration method that effectively deals with sparse rewards is curiosity driven learning-where agents are equipped with a self-supervised forward prediction model that employs prediction errors  ...

Can Children Catch Curiosity from a Social Robot?

Goren Gordon, Cynthia Breazeal, Susan Engel
2015 Proceedings of the Tenth Annual ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction - HRI '15  
We manipulated the robot's behavior to be either curiosity-driven or not and measured the child's curiosity after the interaction.  ...  These results suggest that interacting with an autonomous social curious robot can selectively guide and promote children's curiosity.  ...  G.G. was supported by the Fulbright commission for Israel, the United States-Israel Educational Foundation.  ...
