Class Notes
Human Robot Interaction (HRI): The field of Human-Robot Interaction is divided between Social Robotics, in which researchers treat robots as stimuli and are primarily concerned with their effects on people, and HRI, in which researchers are primarily concerned with discovering ways for getting robots to do what we want them to do. This class will provide a broad survey of the field including readings and discussion on Social Robotics but will emphasize issues and research involving the technical side of HRI. These include considering both the human's ability to affect robot behavior (commands, etc.), the robot's ability to affect human behavior (reliability, transparency, etc.), and interaction design to manipulate both to improve performance.
