Nomura, Tatsuya, Takayuki Kanda, Hiroyoshi Kidokoro, Yoshitaka Suehiro and Sachie Yamada 2016 Why do children abuse robots?Interaction Studies 17:3, pp. 347–369
We found that children sometimes abused a social robot placed in a shopping mall hallway. They verbally abused the robot, repeatedly obstructed its path, and sometimes even kicked and punched the robot. To investigate the reasons for the abuse, we conducted a field study in which we interviewed… read more | Article
Kanngiesser, Patricia, Shoji Itakura, Yue Zhou, Takayuki Kanda, Hiroshi Ishiguro and Bruce Hood 2015 The role of social eye-gaze in children’s and adults’ ownership attributions to robotic agents in three culturesInteraction Studies 16:1, pp. 1–28
Young children often treat robots as social agents after they have witnessed interactions that can be interpreted as social. We studied in three experiments whether four-year-olds from three cultures (China, Japan, UK) and adults from two cultures (Japan, UK) will attribute ownership of objects to… read more | Article
Okumura, Yuko, Yasuhiro Kanakogi, Takayuki Kanda, Hiroshi Ishiguro and Shoji Itakura 2015 Can infants use robot gaze for object learning? The effect of verbalizationGaze in Human-Robot Communication, Broz, Frank, Hagen Lehmann, Bilge Mutlu and Yukiko Nakano (eds.), pp. 33–46
Previous research has shown that although infants follow the gaze direction of robots, robot gaze does not facilitate infants’ learning for objects. The present study examined whether robot gaze affects infants’ object learning when the gaze behavior was accompanied by verbalizations.… read more | Article
Okumura, Yuko, Yasuhiro Kanakogi, Takayuki Kanda, Hiroshi Ishiguro and Shoji Itakura 2013 Can infants use robot gaze for object learning? The effect of verbalizationGaze in human-robot communication, Broz, Frank, Hagen Lehmann, Bilge Mutlu and Yukiko Nakano (eds.), pp. 351–365
Previous research has shown that although infants follow the gaze direction of robots, robot gaze does not facilitate infants’ learning for objects. The present study examined whether robot gaze affects infants’ object learning when the gaze behavior was accompanied by verbalizations.… read more | Article
Shimada, Michihiro and Takayuki Kanda 2012 What is the appropriate speech rate for a communication robot?Interaction Studies 13:3, pp. 408–435
This study investigates the influence of a robot’s speech rate. In human communication, slow speech is considered boring, speech at normal speed is perceived as credible, and fast speech is perceived as competent. To seek the appropriate speech rate for robots, we test whether these tendencies are… read more | Article
Kahn, Jr., Peter H., Aimee L. Reichert, Brian T. Gill, Takayuki Kanda, Hiroshi Ishiguro and Jolina H. Ruckert 2011 Validating characterizations of sociality in HRI: It’s more than psychometricsNew Frontiers in Human–Robot Interaction, Dautenhahn, Kerstin and Joe Saunders (eds.), pp. 57–72
As the HRI field evolves, researchers increasingly seek to provide characterizations of sociality in human-robot interaction. But how does one assess whether the characterizations are valid? Using design work on “interaction patterns” as a case in point, this paper offers 5 approaches toward… read more | Article
Kanda, Takayuki, Masahiro Shiomi and Norihiro Hagita 2011 Communication robots: Application challenges of human-robot interactionNew Frontiers in Human–Robot Interaction, Dautenhahn, Kerstin and Joe Saunders (eds.), pp. 235–256
In this chapter, we discuss challenges in applications of communication robots. A communication robot is a robot that communicates with people in the way people normally do with each other. To date, there is no actual deployment of communication robots, hence researchers have been actively… read more | Article
Moriguchi, Yusuke, Takayuki Kanda, Hiroshi Ishiguro, Yoko Shimada and Shoji Itakura 2011 Can young children learn words from a robot?Interaction Studies 12:1, pp. 107–118
Young children generally learn words from other people. Recent research has shown that children can learn new actions and skills from nonhuman agents. This study examines whether young children could learn words from a robot. Preschool children were shown a video in which either a woman (human… read more | Article
Nomura, Tatsuya, Tomohiro Suzuki, Takayuki Kanda, Sachie Yamada and Kensuke Kato 2011 Attitudes toward robots and factors influencing themNew Frontiers in Human–Robot Interaction, Dautenhahn, Kerstin and Joe Saunders (eds.), pp. 73–88
Attitudes toward robots, in particular, negative attitudes are important factors influencing human perception and behaviors toward robots. The chapter surveys the existing studies using the Negative Attitudes toward Robots Scale for measuring these attitudes, and then reports a current study based… read more | Article
Nomura, Tatsuya, Takayuki Kanda, Tomohiro Suzuki and Kensuke Kato 2009 Age differences and images of robots: Social survey in JapanRobots in the Wild: Exploring human-robot interaction in naturalistic environments, Dautenhahn, Kerstin (ed.), pp. 374–391
In order to investigate the influence of participants’ age on their image of robots in Japan, a pilot research was completed by 371 visitors (male: 124, female: 246, age: from 2 to 80 years) at a robot exhibition held at a commercial facility in Japan, based on the questionnaire consisting of four… read more | Article
Kahn, Jr., Peter H., Hiroshi Ishiguro, Batya Friedman, Takayuki Kanda, Nathan G. Freier, Rachel L. Severson and Jessica Miller 2007 What is a Human? Toward psychological benchmarks in the field of human–robot interactionPsychological Benchmarks of Human–Robot Interaction, Kahn, Jr., Peter H. and Karl F. MacDorman (eds.), pp. 363–390
In this paper, we move toward offering psychological benchmarks to measure success in building increasingly humanlike robots. By psychological benchmarks we mean categories of interaction that capture conceptually fundamental aspects of human life, specified abstractly enough to resist their… read more | Article
This paper reports our research efforts on social robots that recognize interpersonal relationships. These investigations are carried out by observing group behaviors while the robot interacts with people. Our humanoid robot interacts with children by speaking and making various gestures. It… read more | Article
Nomura, Tatsuya, Tomohiro Suzuki, Takayuki Kanda and Kensuke Kato 2006 Measurement of negative attitudes toward robotsInteraction Studies 7:3, pp. 437–454
A great deal of research has been performed recently on robots that feature functions for communicating with humans in daily life, i.e., communication robots. We consider it important to develop methods to measure humans’ attitudes and emotions that may prevent them from interaction with… read more | Article
