          About This Event

          Summary

          School of Informatics and Department of Computer and Information Science Joint Colloquium:

           Abstract

          Interacting embodied agents, be they groups of adults engaged in a coordinated task, a mother teaching a child, or autonomous robots acting in an environment, must seamlessly coordinate their actions to achieve a collaborative goal. The pursuit of a shared goal requires mutual recognition of the goal, appropriate sequencing and coordination of each agent's behavior with others, and making predictions from and about the likely behavior of others. In this talk, Dr. Yu will first present a set of studies using advanced sensing equipment and data mining techniques to collect and analyze dynamic multi-coupling sensory data in child-parent interactions. The results show that inter-agent coordination at least at an elementary level depends crucially on external (and observable) behaviors by the participants where the real-time behavior of one participant organizes the actions of the other--behaviors such as eye movements, head turns, and hand gestures--and those micro-level behaviors are predictive to successful word learning through child-parent free-play interaction. Next, I will present a multimodal human-robot interaction experiment using a Nao robot as an embodied model. A gaze-contingent design was implemented in which we systematically manipulated the robot's gaze to the human partner's face in real time and then analyzed the human's gaze behavior as a response to the robot's gaze behavior. The results show participants demonstrated more coordinated and synchronized multimodal behaviors between speech and gaze when more eye contact was successfully established and maintained.
