    Virtual Agents for Human Communication - Emotion Regulation and Involvement-Distance Trade-Offs in Embodied Conversational Agents and Robots

    Export to Mendeley

    Thus far, Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs) and social robots were mainly developed from a technical point of view. Robot designers face the challenge to create ECAs that can understand and simulate genuine affective behavior. In this PhD project, I looked into models of human emotional behavior. Together with my co-researchers, I formalized these models, so computers can use them to compute their 'own emotions', and behave affectively like humans do. In future research at the SELEMCA project (www.selemca.com), we will use these models for developing 'Caredroids': humanoid care robots to improve the well-being of patients and care deliverers. It is important to realize that these could be used for the good, but also for malicious purposes. Therefore, we should reflect on our research, and talk about the possible consequences, to ensure that the step we are making forward really is improving human life, and does not turn out to actually be a step into a pitfall.

    Title : Virtual Agents for Human Communication - Emotion Regulation and Involvement-Distance Trade-Offs in Embodied Conversational Agents and Robots
    Author(s) : Matthijs Pontier
    Abstract : Thus far, Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs) and social robots were mainly developed from a technical point of view. Robot designers face the challenge to create ECAs that can understand and simulate genuine affective behavior. In this PhD project, I looked into models of human emotional behavior. Together with my co-researchers, I formalized these models, so computers can use them to compute their 'own emotions', and behave affectively like humans do. In future research at the SELEMCA project (www.selemca.com), we will use these models for developing 'Caredroids': humanoid care robots to improve the well-being of patients and care deliverers. It is important to realize that these could be used for the good, but also for malicious purposes. Therefore, we should reflect on our research, and talk about the possible consequences, to ensure that the step we are making forward really is improving human life, and does not turn out to actually be a step into a pitfall.
