Recognition in Human–Robot Interaction : The gateway to engagement

Brinck, Ingar LU and Balkenius, Christian LU (2019) ICDL-EpiRob 2019 p.1-6
Abstract
We argue that mutually adaptive interaction involves the robot as a partner as opposed to a tool, and requires that the robot is susceptible to similar environmental cues and behaviour patterns as humans are. Recognition, or the acknowledgement of the other as individual, is fundamental to mutually adaptive interaction. Recognition leads to a dynamic coupling of human and robot such that they become one system. This process can be seen from both a cognitive and normative perspective. The cognitive aspect has to do with bonding and convergence, resulting in identification and entrainment. The phenomenological aspects relates to responsiveness and complementarity that lead to mutual engagement and commitment. We propose that recognition is... (More)

We propose that recognition is key to successful cooperation with robots and HRI would benefit from implementing recognition as a fundamental ability of any social robot. (Less)
