Found in: 2013 Humaine Association Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII)
By Megan Strait,Gordon Briggs,Matthias Scheutz
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 505-510
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) has been investigated extensively with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and identified as a neural correlate of emotion regulation and decision-making, particularly in the context of moral utilitarian dilemmas. Howev...
Let me tell you! investigating the effects of robot communication strategies in advice-giving situations based on robot appearance, interaction modality and distance
Found in: Proceedings of the 2014 ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '14)
By Cody Canning, Matthias Scheutz, Megan Strait
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 479-486
Recent proposals for how robots should talk to people when they give advice suggest that the same strategies humans employ with other humans are effective for robots as well. However, the evidence is exclusively based on people's observation of robot givin...
