Why Robots Should Be Social: Enhancing Machine Learning through Social Human-Robot Interaction

Joachim de Greeff, Tony Belpaeme, Josh Bongard
2015 PLoS ONE  
We use a child-like social robot and a task in which the robot has to learn the meaning of words. For this a simple turn-based interaction is used, based on language games.  ...  Specifically, we study whether people are sensitive to social cues offered by a learning robot, in a similar way to children's social bids for tutoring.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank Frédéric Delaunay for making the LightHead robot available and programming the facial animations, and James Kennedy, Paul Baxter and the anonymous reviewers for  ...
