Breakfast at SSCY
“Social” robots are designed to look lifelike and use social communication techniques (e.g., speech, gestures). We will present our social robot research that demonstrates how to create robots for emotional support and development, through physical comfort, meaningful conversation, and management of trust toward robots. We will discuss potential applications of our work in education and health-related domains for kids of all ages.
- To understand what social robots are, and why they are made to look and act lifelike.

- To learn about potential applications of social robot research in education and health-related work with kids.
