    • Better be reactive at the beginning. Implications of the first seconds of an encounter for the tutoring style in human-robot-interaction 

      Pitsch, K.; Wrede, B.; Lohan, K.S.; Rohlfing, K.; Saunders, J.; Nehaniv, C.L. (IEEE, 2012)
      The paper investigates the effects of a robot's on-line feedback during a tutoring situation with a human tutor. Analysis is based on a study conducted with an iCub robot that autonomously generates its feedback (gaze, ...
    • Contingency allows the robot to spot the tutor and to learn from interaction 

      Fischer, K.; Saunders, J.; Lehmann, H.; Nehaniv, C.L.; Lohan, K.S.; Pitsch, K.; Rohlfing, K.J.; Wrede, B. (IEEE, 2011-01-01)
      Aiming at artificial system learning from a human tutor elicit tutoring behavior, which we implemented on the robotic platform iCub. For the evaluation of the system with users, we considered a contingency module that is ...
    • Contingency scaffolds language learning 

      Lohan, K.S.; Rohlfing, K.; Saunders, J.; Nehaniv, C.L.; Wrede, B. (IEEE, 2012)
      In human robot interaction the question how to communicate is an important one. The answer to this question can be approached through several perspectives. One approach to study the best way how a robot should behave in ...
    • Evaluating extrovert and introvert behaviour of a domestic robot : a video study 

      Lohse, M.; Hanheide, M.; Wrede, B.; Walters, M.L.; Koay, K.L.; Syrdal, D.S.; Green, Anders; Huttenrauch, H.; Dautenhahn, K.; Sagerer, G.; Severinson-Eklundh, K. (IEEE, 2008)
      Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) research is here presented into social robots that have to be able to interact with inexperienced users. In the design of these robots many research findings of human-human interaction and ...
    • The impact of the contingency of robot feedback on HRI 

      Fischer, K.; Lohan, K.; Saunders, J.; Nehaniv, C.L.; Wrede, B.; Rohlfing, K. (IEEE, 2013)
      In this paper, we investigate the impact the contingency of robot feedback may have on the quality of verbal human-robot interaction. In order to assess not only what the effects are but also what they are caused by, we ...
    • Integration of Action and Language Knowledge: A Roadmap for Developmental Robotics 

      Cangelosi, A.; Metta, G.; Sagerer, G.; Nolfi, S.; Nehaniv, C.L.; Fischer, K.; Tani, J.; Belpaeme, T.; Sandini, G.; Nori, F.; Fadiga, L.; Wrede, B.; Rohlfing, K.; Tuci, E.; Dautenhahn, K.; Saunders, J.; Zeschel, A. (2010)
      This position paper proposes that the study of embodied cognitive agents, such as humanoid robots, can advance our understanding of the cognitive development of complex sensorimotor, linguistic, and social learning skills. ...
    • Tutor Spotter : Proposing a Feature Set and Evaluating It in a Robotic System 

      Lohan, K.S.; Rohlfing, K.J.; Pitsch, K.; Saunders, J.; Lehmann, H.; Nehaniv, C.L.; Fischer, K.; Wrede, B. (2012-04-01)
      From learning by observation, robotic research has moved towards investigations of learning by interaction. This research is inspired by findings from developmental studies on human children and primates pointing to the ...
