Creative Collaboration With a Social Robot
In this video, Robovie is engaging in a creative collaboration with the research participant. Notice how the participant incorporates some of the robot’s ideas in her final creative idea.
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 children’s 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.
