ABOUT THE CALENDAR
Swarm-TerraSwarm Seminar: Mixing Human and Robotic Agents
Seminar: Swarm Lab | April 4 | 12:30-2 p.m. | 490H Cory Hall
Leila Takayama, Research Scientist, Willow Garage
We encounter and interact with robotic agents every day when withdrawing cash from ATMs, driving cars with anti-lock brakes, and tuning our thermostats. Through a combination of controlled experiments and field studies, this talk will examine the ways that people make sense of robotic agents, including (1) how we interact with personal robots, and (2) how we interact through telepresence robots. Drawing from the theories that informed ubiquitous computing (aka: embodied virtuality), we can see how people make sense of agentic objects, thereby providing implications for both theory and the design of interactive systems.
