Hindriks, K. Neerincx, M.A. Publication year 2018 Abstract Pediatric oncology patients could benefit from bonding with a social robot and talking about their day in the hospital. With our research we aim to contribute to the development of a robot that is able to facilitate a child-robot bond autonomously and long-term. We propose to use robot-disclosure and a shared interaction history to create a child-robot bond where the child feels comfortable and familiar enough to talk about their day with the robot. © 2018 Authors.
