Exploring Human-Robot Interaction and Robot Roles in Education and Training

Date Thursday, Nov 28  Time   –    Room Tiergarten

Social robots are becoming useful parts of the education ecosystem. They are equipped with multimodal interaction capabilities and, equally important, have a physical presence. This session will increase your awareness about various training and educationally oriented applications of humanoid robots. We'll review their potential in training, discuss technical challenges and will consider how the robot’s appearance and behavior affect learning outcomes.
