Person in Charge of the Project：Kazunori Takashio
"Making Robots more Sociable" is a phrase by Prof. Gordon Cheng who is the director of the Institute for Cognitive Systems, Technische Universitat Munchen. Now robots obtain capabilities to access ubiquitous information spaces, and human ability and our cognitive performance will be gradually enhanced. The robots will also be integrated well into the human life and helping us naturally. They will have rich sensory perception and expressive facial and body signals, and are going to be sociable partners for us. He/her turns around when you call him/her, and is getting angry you hit him/her. In this exhibition, we will show what kind of "sociality" robots should have in robot to robot (R2R) and robot to human (R2H) interactions.
