Robots for Social Good

Zaga, C. (Deputy Coordinator)

    Activity: Other

    Description

    Organized and lead together with Waag a public program around robot for social goof.

    Do you trust robots enough to nanny your child? Although this issue probably does not play a major role in your daily life, robots are increasingly used in both education and upbringing to stimulate social behaviour in children. But can robots stimulate aspects such as empathy, playing together, sharing or having meaningful conversations? How does that work? How do you design technology that positively influences the social development of children and interactions with peers? What abilities can robots incorporate to encourage children to adopt positive behaviour?

    This evening is all about social robotics. Intelligent, social robots that can control social behaviour. We will talk with Cristina Zaga, researcher (PhD) in the field of human-robot interaction. Cristina will bring examples of social robots that can be tested and discussed.
