In this paper we report our first attempt on building a Human-Agent Interaction (HAI) open-source toolkit to build HAI applications. We present a human-robot interaction application using the Cozmo robot built using different modules. The scenario of this application involves getting the agent’s attention by calling its name (Cozmo), then interacting with it by asking it for information concerning restaurant (e.g: ”give me the nearest vegetarian restaurant”). We detail the implementation and evaluation of each module and indicate the future steps towards building the full open-source toolkit.
