Robotics and Human-Robot Interaction

Robotics research at the Tufts CS Department investigates fundamental problems at the intersection of robotics, artificial intelligence and the psychology of human-robot interaction. How can robots learn about the world by interacting with humans? How can robots “think” ethically when faced with complicated decisions? What design factors contribute to effective human-robot collaboration and trust?

Recent focus areas include:
  • Cognitive architectures for complex robots
  • Robot ethics
  • Cognitive and developmental robotics
  • Service robotics
  • Language grounding and learning
  • Augmented reality for human-robot interaction
  • Human-Robot Teaming
  • Interactive Task Learning
  • One-Shot Learning
  • Assistive Human-Robot Interaction
  • Human-in-the-Loop Robot Learning
  • Public space robotics
  • Multi-party human-robot interaction
