Palestrante: Gabriele Trovato

Abstract : Human-robot interaction poses several challenges as interaction is not always comfortable. Some important factors such as physical appearance, culturally adaptive behaviour, comprehensibility and perceived intelligence concur to robot acceptance. Through careful design of head, body and behaviour, robot can be seen as more familiar. In this presentation, experiments done inseveral countries with humanoid robots shed light on the matter.
