The Social Robotics Journal Club
The goal of the Social Robots Journal Club is to discuss recent articles in the field of human-robot interaction (HRI). We will read and dissect papers from a wide range of HRI topics, from the perception of artificial agents, to the beliefs and experiences of human agents, to (non)shared neural representation mediating interaction with our robotic friends and much more. We discuss controversies, common ground and ultimately how the article contribute to our understanding of the mechanisms and consequences of attributing socialness to artificial agents. Every week we will discuss one article in an informal setting. Attendees are encouraged to share their own opinions and perspective on the article. The journal club is open to everyone interested, staff and students. For more information please contact Ruud Hortensius.
The 2018 Spring Tour
No upcoming meetings this semester (Spring 2018), as Team SoBots undertakes the big move up to Scotland. Stay tuned for autumn 2018 when we'll announce a schedule for bigger, better, Glasgow Social Robotics meetings, including fabulous guest speakers!
