IEEE CIR: Secret Agents: The Real and Imagined Inner Lives of Interactive Robots

October 14 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM MDT

Presentation: Secret Agents: The Real and Imagined Inner Lives of Interactive Robots Abstract: This presentation focuses on the role that notions of agency play in the design of language-capable interactive robots. I will begin by explaining the overall impact that robot design choices have on how people perceive robots and expect them to behave. I’ll then explain why robots are not simply agents, but are also moral and social agents, and describe the work the MIRRORLab has been doing to understand and address the unique perceptions and expectations that come along with these more nuanced types of agency. In doing so, I will cover not only the computational aspects of our work, but also the way that our work is informed by theories and methods from psychology (cognitive, human factors, social, and moral), philosophy (of mind, of language, of morality), linguistics, design, and other fields. Speaker(s): Dr. Tom Williams, Bldg: webex, 2155 East Wesley Avenue, Denver, Colorado, United States, 80208, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/279803
