The field of social robotics, be these physical or virtual, is advancing fast, however, the challenge continues to be the socially relevant context awareness of these artificial characters so that human interaction with them would become meaningful in varying situations of everyday life.
The research aims at developing novel ways to adopt the films and their scripts as a training material for social robotics. This would constitute a major breakthrough for modeling systemically adaptive dynamics of artificial characters with increased human relevance for a variety of societal XR applications, e.g. in medical or educational fields.
The proposed research focus converges the multidisciplinary expertise at TLU on audiovisual narratives, semiotics, VR/XR, cultural data analytics, machine learning, psychophysiology, and social robotics. It strengthens TLU’s international collaborations within these fields.
