  • Where Robots and Virtual Agents Meet A Survey of Social Interaction Research across Milgrams Reality-Virtuality ContinuumThomas Holz Mauro Dragone G.M.P. OHare

  • ROBOTA mechanical device that sometimes resembles a human and is capable of performing a variety of often complex human tasks on command or by being programmed in advance

    Robots can be similar in form to a human, but industrial robots do not resemble people at all

  • ROBOT (cont..) Huey, Dewey, and LouieASIMO

  • VIRTUAL AGENTSautonomous, graphically embodied agents in a virtual environment that are able to interact intelligently with human users, other IVAs, and their environment

    virtual agents act in a dynamic, unpredictable, interactive world

  • VIRTUAL AGENTS (cont..) ADELESTEVE

  • SOCIAL INTERACTION with Robotic and Virtual AgentsRobots must exhibit social interaction skills

    Humanlike virtual characters (virtual humans) are being used with success as virtual representatives of human users in virtual conference applications

    Human treats virtual characters as social partners

  • DIFFERENCE betweenPhysical and Virtual Agents ROBOTS

    Physical presence and their ability to interact to the physical world and the human

    Physical nature evokes a higher sense of presence in the user making them more trustworthy and engagingVIRTUAL AGENTS

    Constrained in their interaction capabilities with the physical world

    Require the user to initiate the action and approach the agent

    visible only from a limited angle and cannot effectively point (or gaze) in the 3D physical surrounding

  • DIFFERENCE betweenPhysical and Virtual Agents (cont..) ROBOTS

    Free to move within physical environment

    Expressional capabilities still remain restrictedVIRTUAL AGENTS

    Capable of actions that are simply impossible in the real world, such asmutating their form

    Exhibit a high degreeof anthropomorphism

  • Moris Uncanny Valley

  • AGENTS embodied in UBIQUITOUS ENVIRONMENTUbiquitous Robotic Companion - guards its owners home, cleans their rooms and reads to their kids

  • AGENTS embodied in UBIQUITOUS ENVIRONMENT (cont..)NECs robot PaPeRo (Partner-Type Personal Robot) communicate not only with other PaPeRos, but also with PCs, PDAs, and with other electrical appliances in the home - can check the users e-mail or tune the TV onto the users favorite channel

  • AGENTS embodied in UBIQUITOUS ENVIRONMENT (cont..)ICat - a research prototype of an emotionally intelligent robot that provides an easy to use and enjoyable interaction style for ubiquitous environments

  • AGENTS in MIXED REALITY ENVIRONMENTSU-Tsu-Shi-O-Mi Virtual Humanoid maps a humanoid avatar onto a robots anatomically correct, green-cloth surface

  • AGENTS in MIXED REALITY ENVIRONMENTS (cont..)MiRA (Mixed Reality Agents) system is the first example to combine a MR character with a physical robot platform to provide an expressive social interface.
