Toward Perceiving Robots as Humans: Three Handshake Models Face the Turing-Like Handshake Test
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Guy Avraham,Ilana Nisky,Hugo L. Fernandes,Daniel E. Acuna,Konrad P. Kording,Gerald E. Loeb,Amir Karniel
Issue Date:July 2012
pp. 196-207
In the Turing test a computer model is deemed to “think intelligently” if it can generate answers that are indistinguishable from those of a human. We developed an analogous Turing-like handshake test to determine if a machine can pro...
Perception and Action in Teleoperated Needle Insertion
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Ilana Nisky,Assaf Pressman,Carla M. Pugh,Ferdinando A. Mussa-Ivaldi,Amir Karniel
Issue Date:July 2011
pp. 155-166
We studied the effect of delay on perception and action in contact with a force field that emulates elastic soft tissue with a rigid nonlinear boundary. Such a field is similar to forces exerted on a needle during teleoperated needle insertion. We found th...
A Regression and Boundary-Crossing-Based Model for the Perception of Delayed Stiffness
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Ilana Nisky, Ferdinando A. Mussa-Ivaldi, Amir Karniel
Issue Date:July 2008
pp. 73-83
The stiffness of the environment with which we come in contact is the local derivative of a force field. The boundary of an elastic field is a singular region where local stiffness is ill-defined. We found that subjects interacting with delayed force field...
