Handling uncertain input in multi-user human-robot interaction

Simon Keizer, Mary Ellen Foster, Andre Gaschler, Manuel Giuliani, Amy Isard, Oliver Lemon
2014 The 23rd IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication  
In this paper we present results from a user evaluation of a robot bartender system which handles state uncertainty derived from speech input by using belief tracking and generating appropriate clarification  ...  We present a combination of state estimation and action selection components in which state uncertainty is tracked and exploited, and compare it to a baseline version that uses standard speech recognition  ...  ., "What can I get you?", "What would you like to drink?")  ...

Machine Learning for Social Multiparty Human--Robot Interaction

Simon Keizer, Mary Ellen Foster, Zhuoran Wang, Oliver Lemon
2014 ACM transactions on interactive intelligent systems (TiiS)  
We describe a variety of machine learning techniques that are being applied to social multi-user human-robot interaction, using a robot bartender in our scenario.  ...  Next, we describe how these components for social state recognition and skills execution have been integrated into an end-to-end robot bartender system, and we discuss the results of a user evaluation.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The research leading to these results has been funded by the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme (FP7) under grant agreement no. 270435 (the JAMES project).  ...

Friends, robots, citizens?

Stephen Rainey
2016 Computers & society  
This paper asks whether and how an artefact, such as a robot, could be considered a citizen. In doing so, it approaches questions of political freedom and artefacts.  ...  In fact, assumption 1 seems like a refusal to recognise robots as having a status beyond servant.  ...  The recognition of robots as citizens, or of any x as y, would in part involve what non-robots are willing to recognise as social or political involvement. 9 And so the EU programme already mentioned  ...

2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To complete the cycle a planner will make the decisions on what can be done, what should be done and how it should be done.  ...  There is a requirement for agents to react to the environment around them as well as to act in a certain manner when introduced to social situations.  ...  Acknowledgements This thesis is supported by the Humanoid Agents in Social Game Environments Grant of Excellence from The Icelandic Research Fund  ...

The impact of artificial intelligence on event experiences: a scenario technique approach

Barbara Neuhofer, Bianca Magnus, Krzysztof Celuch
2020 Electronic Markets  
The paper makes a theoretical contribution in that it bridges marketing, technology and experience literature, and zooms in on AI as a non-human actor of future experience life ecosystems.  ...  Digital technologies are transforming human relations, interactions and experiences in the business landscape.  ...  The bartender robot refuses to sell her a drink, justifying it to the fact that she is under 18. "There has to be an error in the system", Eva responds, "I am 28."  ...
