Názov: Towards legible motion of simulated NICO

Termín: 9.10.2023, 13:10 hod., I/9

In human-robot interaction, we expect the robot to act in such a way as to ensure smooth cooperation. One desirable property of a robot's motion is legibility. Motion is defined as legible if an observer is able to correctly predict the motion's goal, while doing so as soon as possible. However, training the robot to be legible with human participants is not feasible, therefore in our experiments with a humanoid robot NICO, we chose to use a neural network observer to predict goals. These predictions are then used to construct part of the reward signal for the acting agent. Training is done with a simulated model of NICO in Unity.
