Urban Computing as HRI with Non-Human-Like Robots
In this project, a part of JST CREST Project "Symbiotic Interaction Platform beyond Bounded Human Rationality", we would like to design a new environment by focusing on non-human-like robots in order to construct a symbiotic interaction platform beyond Bounded Human Rationality. As self-driving cars, AI, and IoT devices become our environment, we are developing non-human-like robots with studying on how robots should be able to have a different presence depending on the situation.
