An important aspect of human emotion perception is the use of contextual information to understand others' feelings even in situations where their behavior is not very expressive or has an emotionally ambiguous meaning. For technology to successfully detect affect, it must mimic this human ability when analyzing audiovisual input. Databases upon...

Social or humanoid robots do hardly show up in "the wild", aiming at pervasive human benefits such as child health. This paper presents the socio-cognitive engineering (SCE) methodology for the required field research \& development of robots, focusing on the incremental development of a social robot and child-robot activities that support the...

Explanation of actions is important for transparency of-, and trust in the decisions of smart systems. Literature suggests that emotions and emotion words - in addition to beliefs and goals - are used in human explanations of behaviour. Furthermore, research in e-health support systems and human-robot interaction stresses the need for studying...

Work package 2 has researched and developed 4 main functionalities that resolve around strategic learning goal setting for children, transparency of the system (explanation and style), and progress monitoring of the child. The first is PAL Control (see deliverable D2.1), an interface for children and health care professionals (HCP) to set...

In this document we report on the work in work package 2 that relates to the development and pilot evaluation of the parental monitoring interface, palInform. PalInform enables parents (and health care professionals) to monitor the learning progress and the data entered by the children for whom they are responsible. The requirements for...

PAL developed a Personal Assistant for healthy Lifestyle (PAL), a system that will assist the child, health professional and parent to advance the self-management of children with type 1 diabetes aged 7 - 14, so that an adequate shared patient-caregiver responsibility for child’s diabetes regimen is established before adolescence.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, including intelligent agents, are becoming increasingly complex. Explainable AI (XAI) is the capability of these systems to explain their behaviour, in a for humans understandable manner. Cognitive agents, a type of intelligent agents, typically explain their actions with their beliefs and desires. However,...

This paper presents a cognitive (belief-desireintention based) agent that can self-explain its behaviour based on its goals and emotions. We implement a cognitive agent, embodied by a nao-robot or virtual avatar thereof, to play a quiz with its user. During the interaction the agent intelligently selects questions to optimally educate the user....

A key challenge in developing companion agents for children is keeping them interested after novelty effects wear off. Self Determination Theory posits that motivation is sustained if the human feels related to another human. According to Social Penetration Theory, relatedness can be established through the reciprocal disclosure of information...

A good explanation takes the user who is receiving the explanation into account. We aim to get a better understanding of user preferences and the differences between children and adults who receive explanations from a robot. We implemented a Nao-robot as a belief-desire-intention (BDI)-based agent and explained its actions using two different...

The PAL project is developing: (1) an embodied conversational agent (robot and its avatar); (2) applications for child-agent activities that help children from 8 to 14 years old to acquire the required knowledge, skills and attitude for adequate diabetes self-management; and (3) dashboards for caregivers to enhance their supportive role for this...

Reciprocal self-disclosure is an integral part of social bonding between humans that has received little attention in the field of human-agent interaction. To study how children react to self-disclosures of a virtual agent, we developed a disclosure intimacy rating scale that can be used to assess both the intimacy level of agent disclosures and...

A parameterized behavior model was developed for robots to show mood during task execution. In this study, we applied the model to the coverbal gestures of a robotic storyteller. This study investigated whether parameterized mood expression can 1) show mood that is changing over time; 2) reinforce affect communication when other modalities exist...

The aim of our work is to design bodily mood expressions of humanoid robots for interactive settings that can be recognized by users and have (positive) effects on people who interact with the robots. To this end, we develop a parameterized behavior model for humanoid robots to express mood through body language. Different settings of the...

This paper reports our investigation into the effects of bodily mood expression of a humanoid robot in a scenario close to real life. To this end, we used the NAO robot to perform as a lecturer in a university class. To display either a positive or a negative mood, we modulated 41 co-verbal gestures by adjusting behavior parameters that control...

Mood contagion is an automatic mechanism that induces a congruent mood state by means of the observation of another person's emotional expression. In this paper, we address the question whether robot mood displayed during an imitation game can (a) be recognized by participants and (b) produce contagion effects. Robot mood was displayed by...

Bodily expression of affect is crucial to human robot interaction. We distinguish between emotion and mood expression, and focus on mood expression. Bodily expression of an emotion is explicit behavior that typically interrupts ongoing functional behavior. Instead, bodily mood expression is integrated with functional behaviors without...
