Professor Sonia Chernova from Worcester Polytechnic Institute will be giving a colloquium talk, Crowdsourcing Human-Robot Interaction through OnlineMultiplayer Games, on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. Refreshments at 2:45, talk at 3:00pm in Olsen 311.
The development of hand-crafted action and dialog generation models for a social robot is a time consuming process that yields a solution only for the relatively narrow range of interactions envisioned by the programmers. In this paper, we propose a data-driven solution for interactive behavior generation that leverages online games as a means of collecting large-scale data corpora for human-robot interaction research. We present a system in which action and dialog models for a collaborative human-robot task are learned based on a reproduction of the task in a two-player online game called Mars Escape.
