The consortium aims at a holistic and interdisciplinary approach for developing socially intelligent robots.
The consortium brings together an international community, leveraging insights from Design, Technology, and Interaction research, to develop robots that not only fit into, but benefit the social contexts they are used in. The main goals of the consortium are to advance social robotics by: (1) building a global network of social robotics experts, enthusiasts, and policymakers, (2) providing common social robotics platforms to researchers, (3) creating standardized data sets and protocols to support reproducible studies, and (4) developing research and outreach programs to improve geographic, cultural, and social diversity in robotics.
As partner in SIRC we focus on Human Robot Trust in interactions with social robots.
