Tell me more! Assessing interactions with social robots from speech

Guy Laban, Jean-Noël George, Val Morrison, Emily S. Cross
2020 Paladyn: Journal of Behavioral Robotics  
Three within-subject experiments were conducted with participants interacting with another person, a humanoid social robot, and a disembodied conversational agent (voice assistant).  ...  Given the importance of self-disclosure for psychological health, this study assessed the viability of using social robots for eliciting rich disclosures that identify needs and emotional states in human  ...  Discussion The study reported here assessed the extent to which disclosures to social robots differ from disclosures to humans and disembodied conversational agents. Across Tell me more!  ...

Let me tell you! investigating the effects of robot communication strategies in advice-giving situations based on robot appearance, interaction modality and distance

Megan Strait, Cody Canning, Matthias Scheutz
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction - HRI '14  
Hence, it is not clear whether the results still apply when people actually participate in real interactions with robots.  ...  The results show that previous results from observation conditions do not transfer automatically to interaction conditions, and that robot appearance and interaction distance are important modulators of  ...  Furthermore, holding the level of presence of the robot constant, people interacting with a robot from first-person perspective (direct interaction) may consider the interaction more seriously than from  ...

Speak to me and I tell you who you are! A language-attitude study in a cultural-heritage application

Brigitte Krenn, Stephanie Schreitter, Friedrich Neubarth
2014 AI & Society: The Journal of Human-Centred Systems and Machine Intelligence  
When developing artificial companions, social attribution significantly influences the attitudes of humans towards the agents.  ...  We present results from a language-attitude study based on three synthetic varieties of Austrian German (a standard and two Viennese varieties) in the context of a cultural-heritage application.  ...  Common to both virtual and robotic companions is that they are perceived as social actors by their human partners, and they need to be capable of communicative interaction.  ...

The Human Takes It All: Humanlike Synthesized Voices Are Perceived as Less Eerie and More Likable. Evidence From a Subjective Ratings Study

Katharina Kühne, Martin H Fischer, Yuefang Zhou
2020 Frontiers in Neurorobotics  
Discussion: Humans clearly prefer human voices, but manipulating diagnostic speech features might increase acceptance of synthesized voices and thereby support human-robot interaction.  ...  Females rated synthesized voices more positively on most dimensions. Surprisingly, interest in social robots and attitudes toward robots played almost no role in voice evaluation.  ...  These results suggest that participants with more education showed more interest in social robots and exhibited a more positive attitude toward them.  ...

Rhetorical robots: Making robots more effective speakers using linguistic cues of expertise

Sean Andrist, Erin Spannan, Bilge Mutlu
2013 2013 8th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI)  
Robots hold great promise as informational assistants such as museum guides, information booth attendants, concierges, shopkeepers, and more.  ...  Not only will robots need to be experts, but they will also need to communicate their expertise effectively in order to raise trust and compliance with the information that they provide.  ...  We would also like to thank Brandi Hefty for her help with conducting the experiment.  ...

Katie A. Riddoch, Emily. S. Cross
2021 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
questions and interdisciplinary collaborations in the domain of social robotics.  ...  In a recent experiment, we adapted the so-called 'hesitance to hit' paradigm, in which participants were instructed to hit a humanoid robot on the head with a mallet.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank members of the Social Brain in Action Laboratory and #TeamSoBots for thoughtful feedback throughout the research process.  ...

The Human Takes It All

Katharina Kühne, Martin H. Fischer, Yuefang Zhou
2021 Postprints der Universität Potsdam: Humanwissenschaftliche Reihe  
Females rated synthesized voices more positively on most dimensions. Surprisingly, interest in social robots and attitudes toward robots played almost no role in voice evaluation.  ...  The increasing involvement of social robots in human lives raises the question as to how humans perceive social robots. Little is known about human perception of synthesized voices.  ...  These results suggest that participants with more education showed more interest in social robots and exhibited a more positive attitude toward them.  ...

Co-constructing intersubjectivity with artificial conversational agents: People are more likely to initiate repairs of misunderstandings with agents represented as human

Kevin Corti, Alex Gillespie
2016 Computers in Human Behavior  
Interactants in dyadic conversations with an agent (the chat bot Cleverbot) spoke to either a text screen interface (agent's responses shown on a screen) or a human body interface (agent's responses vocalized  ...  This article explores whether people more frequently attempt to repair misunderstandings when speaking to an artificial conversational agent if it is represented as fully human.  ...  Android science has shown that while humans do demand more sociality from actual humans than from androids, people expect more sociality from androids than from mechanical looking robots and lesser-looking  ...
