To reduce the ambiguity and the different semantic interpretations of human observersí reports, we propose a new paradigm in collaborating information using icons to represent concepts or ideas. Two prototypes of icon-based communication interfaces were developed with which users can create iconic messages to report situations where a crisis event occurs. The interfaces interpret and convert the messages to human natural language. A context-aware collaborative information system filters irrelevant and infidelity reports and shares the results for further decision making.more....

We set out to test if the Media Equation could be applied to robots too, especially with negative behavior. This would mean that we, humans, are inclined to treat robots as same as we would another human-being. To do so we replicated an experiment done by Stanley Milgram in 1965. With this experiment Milgram tested how far people would go in torturing another person. We performed the experiment with a robot instead of a human-victim and compared the results of the two experiments. The differences between the results of the two experiments were very obvious. The subjects of our experiments went a lot further in torturing the robot. From this we conclude that the Media Equation only applies to human-robot interaction to a certain degree.more....

This study presents the result of a cross-cultural study of negative attitude towards robots. A questionnaire was presented to Dutch, Chinese, German, Mexican, American (USA) and Japanese participants based on the Negative Attitude towards Robots Scale (NARS). The American participants were least negative towards robots, while the Mexican were most negative. Against our expectation, the Japanese participants did not have a particularly positive attitude towards robots.more....

In this paper we present our work on developing a shared repertoire of action categories through imitation. A population of robotic agents invents and shares a repertoire of action categories by engaging in imitative interactions. We present an experimental set-up which enables us to investigate what properties agents should have in order to achieve this. Among these properties are: being able to determine the otherís actions from visual observation and doing incremental unsupervised categorisation of actions.more....
