Project Details

Description

The project aims to equip future robots with empathy by developing computational models which can leverage from verbal and non-verbal cues.With recent advances in artificial intelligence research, robots now have better cognitive and function skills, but they lack socio-emotional skills, which are critical to how humans interact. Since these robots are expected to provide assistance to humans across different domains including rehabilitation, education and health care, empowering them with empathetic abilities is important for their success. The project will advance fundamental research in machine learning, affective computing and artificial intelligence to model human behavior, personality traits and emotions for an empathetic human-robot interaction.
