  • Details


Scientific Objective

Develop a novel paradigm and novel concept of socially-aware robots, and to conceive innovative methods and algorithms for computer vision, audio processing, sensor-based control, and spoken dialog systems based on modern statistical- and deep-learning to ground the required social robot skills.

Technological Objective

Create and launch a brand new generation of robots that are flexible enough to adapt to the needs of the users, and not the other way around.

Experimental Objective

Validate the technology based on HRI experiments in a gerontology hospital, and to assess its acceptability by patients and medical staff.
