Robots in the role of assistants and companions are becoming increasingly popular. The talk will provide two examples of robot companions, namely the field of robot assisted play for children with autism and home assistance for elderly and other users.
Examples will include research as part of the European project LIREC where UH develops robot companions for the UH "Robot House". Research challenges as well as ethical issues involved in this research will be discussed
Prof Dr Kerstein Dautenhahn is in the Adaptive Systems Research Group, School of Computer Science, University of Hertfordshire.
