Learning Compliant Manipulation through Kinesthetic and Tactile Human-Robot Interaction
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Klas Kronander,Aude Billard
Issue Date:July 2014
pp. 367-380
Robot Learning from Demonstration (RLfD) has been identified as a key element for making robots useful in daily lives. A wide range of techniques has been proposed for deriving a task model from a set of demonstrations of the task. Most previous works use ...
 
On the Influence of Emotional Feedback on Emotion Awareness and Gaze Behavior
Found in: 2013 Humaine Association Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII)
By Fabien Ringeval,Andreas Sonderegger,Basilio Noris,Aude Billard,Juergen Sauer,Denis Lalanne
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 448-453
This paper examines how emotion feedback influences emotion awareness and gaze behavior. Simulating a videoconference setup, 36 participants watched 12 emotional video sequences that were selected from the SEMAINE database. All participants wore an eye-tra...

Biologically Inspired Neural Controllers for Motor Control in a Quadruped Robot
Found in: Neural Networks, IEEE - INNS - ENNS International Joint Conference on
By Aude Billard, Auke Jan Ijspeert
Issue Date:July 2000
pp. 6637
This paper presents biologically inspired neural controllers for generating motor patterns in a quadruped robot. Sets of artificial neural networks are presented which provide 1) pattern generation and gait control, allowing continuous passage from walking...
 
Encoding bi-manual coordination patterns from human demonstrations
Found in: Proceedings of the 2014 ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '14)
By Ana Lucia Pais, Aude Billard
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 264-265
Humans perform tasks such as bowl mixing bi-manually, but programming them on a robot can be challenging specially in tasks that require force control or on-line stiffness modulation. In this paper we first propose a user-friendly setup for demonstrating b...
     
Panel 2: social responsibility in human-robot interaction
Found in: Proceeding of the 5th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '10)
By Aude Billard, Hiroshi Ishiguro, Illah Nourbakhsh, Nathan Freier
Issue Date:March 2010
pp. 11-11
At the 2008 ACM/IEEE Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, a provocative panel was held to discuss the complicated ethical issues that abound in the field of human-robot interaction. The panel members and the audience participation made it clear that the ...
     
Evaluating the ICRA 2008 HRI challenge
Found in: Proceedings of the 4th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human robot interaction (HRI '09)
By Astrid Weiss, Aude Billard, Manfred Tscheligi, Thomas Scherndl
Issue Date:March 2009
pp. 5-6
This paper reports on the evaluation of the ICRA 2008 Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Challenge. Five research groups demonstrated state-of-the-art work on HRI with a special focus on social and learning abilities. The demonstrations were rated by expert eva...
     
Combining dynamical systems control and programmingby demonstration for teaching discrete bimanual coordination tasks to a humanoid robot
Found in: Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Human robot interaction (HRI '08)
By Aude Billard, Elena Gribovskaya
Issue Date:March 2008
pp. 1-89
We present a generic framework that combines Dynamical Systems movement control with Programming by Demonstration (PbD) to teach a robot bimanual coordination task. The model consists of two systems: a learning system that processes data collected during t...
     
Incremental learning of gestures by imitation in a humanoid robot
Found in: Proceeding of the ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '07)
By Aude Billard, Sylvain Calinon
Issue Date:March 2007
pp. 255-262
We present an approach to teach incrementally human gestures to a humanoid robot. By using active teaching methods that puts the human teacher "in the loop" of the robot's learning, we show that the essential characteristics of a gesture can be efficiently...
     
Recognition and reproduction of gestures using a probabilistic framework combining PCA, ICA and HMM
Found in: Proceedings of the 22nd international conference on Machine learning (ICML '05)
By Aude Billard, Sylvain Calinon
Issue Date:August 2005
pp. 105-112
This paper explores the issue of recognizing, generalizing and reproducing arbitrary gestures. We aim at extracting a representation that encapsulates only the key aspects of the gesture and discards the variability intrinsic to each person's motion. We co...
     
Bringing up robots or---the psychology of socially intelligent robots: from theory to implementation
Found in: Proceedings of the third annual conference on Autonomous Agents (AGENTS '99)
By Aude Billard, Kerstin Dautenhahn
Issue Date:April 1999
pp. 366-367
When creating virtual reality environments a large amount of the interaction needs to be programmed. The problem with this is that non-computer expert users lack the programming skills necessary to create useful applications. Specifying interactions remain...
