Hindemith, Lukas, Jan Philip Göpfert, Christiane B. Wiebel-Herboth, Britta Wrede and Anna-Lisa Vollmer 2021 Why robots should be technical: Correcting mental models through technical architecture conceptsInteraction Studies 22:2, pp. 244–279 | Article
Research in social robotics is commonly focused on designing robots that imitate human behavior. While this might increase a user’s satisfaction and acceptance of robots at first glance, it does not automatically aid a non-expert user in naturally interacting with robots, and might hurt their… read more
Pitsch, Karola, Anna-Lisa Vollmer, Katharina Rohlfing, Jannik Fritsch and Britta Wrede 2014 Tutoring in adult-child interaction: On the loop of the tutor’s action modification and the recipient’s gazeInteraction Studies 15:1, pp. 55–98 | Article
Research of tutoring in parent-infant interaction has shown that tutors – when presenting some action – modify both their verbal and manual performance for the learner (‘motherese’, ‘motionese’). Investigating the sources and effects of the tutors’ action modifications, we suggest an interactional… read more
Pitsch, Karola, Anna-Lisa Vollmer and Manuel Mühlig 2013 Robot feedback shapes the tutor’s presentation: How a robot’s online gaze strategies lead to micro-adaptation of the human’s conductAsymmetry and adaptation in social interaction: A micro-analytic perspective, Nomikou, Iris, Karola Pitsch and Katharina Rohlfing (eds.), pp. 268–296 | Article
The paper investigates the effects of a humanoid robot’s online feedback during a tutoring situation in which a human demonstrates how to make a frog jump across a table. Motivated by micro-analytic studies of adult-child-interaction, we investigated whether tutors react to a robot’s gaze… read more
