Human Creativity Can be Facilitated Through Interacting With a Social Robot

Description :

In this video, Robovie is seeking to enhance a participant’s creativity in the lab’s Zen rock garden. Robovie asks the participant questions (e.g., “Can you think of another way to do that?”), and pulls relevant images and a video clip from the web to spur the participant into more creative expressions.

Note: To implement the interaction patterns of our study, we partly controlled Robovie from an adjacent room. This "Wizard-of-Oz" technique was employed to serve one of the goals of this study, which was to investigate young adults social and moral relationships with a humanoid robot with capabilities that lie beyond those currently achievable by an autonomous robot, but which could thereby provide insight into foundational questions of human-robot interaction.
