REFORM: Recognizing F-formations for Social Robots [article]

Hooman Hedayati, Annika Muehlbradt, Daniel J. Szafir, Sean Andrist
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Recognizing and understanding conversational groups, or F-formations, is a critical task for situated agents designed to interact with humans.  ...  REFORM decomposes the scene into all possible pairs and then reconstructs F-formations with a voting-based scheme.  ...  Prior research in the social sciences has explored several nuances regarding the structure and dynamics of social groups to understand how people organize and regulate group interactions.  ...

Integration of the Multi-DOA Estimation Functionality to Human-Robot Interaction

Caleb Rascon, Ivan Meza, Gibran Fuentes, Lisset Salinas, Luis A. Pineda
2015 International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems  
In this paper, we propose three strategies for how to integrate the functionality of multiple directions-of-arrival (multi-DOA) estimation with a common scenario, in which the robot acts as a waiter while  ...  The proposed strategies are: a) the robot locates calls from users at a relatively long distance; b) the robot faces the user when taking the order; and c) the robot announces whether the acoustic environment  ...  Interactions with two orders 50.0% Interactions with three orders 40.0% Table 5 .  ...

Socially distributed perception

Marek P. Michalowski, Carl DiSalvo, Didac Busquets, Laura M. Hiatt, Nik A. Melchior, Reid Simmons, Selma Sabanovic
2006 Proceeding of the 1st ACM SIGCHI/SIGART conference on Human-robot interaction - HRI '06  
We then present observations and results that suggest that we were successful in promoting a form of social interaction that allowed people to help the robot achieve its goal.  ...  This paper presents a robot search task (social tag) that uses social interaction, in the form of asking for help, as an integral component of task completion.  ...  The notion of a "socially situated agent" [4] implies that a robot interacts both socially and physically with the environment in order to acquire information about the social and physical domains.  ...

Spontaneous Avatar Behavior for Human Territoriality [chapter]

Claudio Pedica, Hannes Högni Vilhjálmsson
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We model the territorial dynamics of social interactions as a set of social norms which constrain the avatar's reactive motion by running a set of behaviors which blend together.  ...  Driven by theories on human territoriality, we define a reactive framework which allows avatar group dynamics during social interaction.  ...  This work is supported by the Humanoid Agents in Social Game Environments Grant of Excellence from The Icelandic Centre for Research.  ...

Do Architects and Designers Think about Interactivity Differently?

David Kirsh
2019 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
An interface for an architect is a niche that includes the very people who interact with it. In HCI, people are still distinct from the interface.  ...  Only in ecological and social interaction is it also reflexive.  ...  When two people walk together, a walks with b iff b walks with a. They symmetrically act in the narrowest sense of both acting on the other through walking with.  ...
