Due to the rapid developments in the field of technology and artificial intelligence, social robots are increasingly used in various areas of life. Not only can robots provide support in the field of medicine, nursing or services, but they are becoming more and more part of our social life and supporting humans in many diverse areas.
This increased use of robotic technologies is causing controversy and lively debates on the responsible use of robots. For science, it is important to shed light on reactions from users, because acceptance and trust in technology is a necessity for the valuable use of robots. Therefore, scientists from a wide range of disciplines are addressing questions such as: How can anthropomorphic robots be placed in a responsible manner? How do a robot's characteristics (e.g., human-likeness, behaviors) impact trust and robot acceptance in a user-robot-relationship? How does the interaction with robots change human-robot interactions over time?
The FiF workshop will discuss issues related to robot psychology, robotic transparency, robotic learning, liability, privacy, and emotion and context recognition. The workshop will thus focus on the conditions for success of new robotic technologies and how possible obstacles can be overcome.
Goal and address group
In the workshop, up to twenty scientists (professors and postdocs) from TU Darmstadt will exchange their thoughts from different perspectives, engage in conversation and develop trans- and interdisciplinary approaches for future research.
We will meet for a creative change of ideas in the in Darmstadt. The lab offers a unique location in a loft environment, which enables and promotes creative and innovative thinking. With its highly innovative office elements and technologies you can experience the working world of the future, and get inspired! leap in time lab
After a short introduction to the topic, you will hear short presentations on the status quo of human-robot interaction. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to discuss aspects of the selected topics in groups.
