Joint Action for Multimodal Embodied Social Systems

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics

As robots become more and more integrated into our daily lives, they must increasingly deal with situations in which socially appropriate interaction is vital. A robot not only requires the necessary physical skills to perform objective tasks in the world, but also the proper social skills to understand and respond to the intentions, desires, and affections of the people it interacts with. The goal of the JAMES project is to develop an artificial embodied agent that supports socially appropriate, multi-party, multimodal interaction. JAMES will focus on the qualitative aspects of task achievement in social situations, and how such tasks can be improved through multimodal communication.
