Enhancing Social Interaction with an AlterEgo Artificial Agent

Enhancing Social Interaction with an AlterEgo Artificial Agent

Objective

AlterEgo: Humanoid robotics and Virtual Reality to improve social interactions
The objective of AlterEgo is the creation of an interactive cognitive architecture, implementable in various artificial agents, allowing a continuous interaction with patients suffering from social disorders. The AlterEgo architecture is rooted in complex systems, machine learning and computer vision. The project will produce a new robotic-based clinical method able to enhance social interaction of patients. This new method will change existing therapies, will be applied to a variety of pathologies and will be individualized to each patient. AlterEgo opens the door to a new generation of social artificial agents in service robotics.
