Cognitive Architectures for HRI

Developments in autonomous agents for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) are gathering pace. The typical approach to such efforts is to start with application to a specific interaction context and then try to generalise to different contexts. Alternatively however, the application of Cognitive Architectures emphasises generality in the first instance, which affords a number of advantages. This workshop will provide a forum to introduce and discuss the application (both existing and potential) of Cognitive Architectures to HRI. By attending, participants will gain insight into how such a consideration of Cognitive Architectures complements the development of autonomous social robots.


This half-day workshop forms part of the programme for the 9th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, taking place at Bielefeld University (Germany) on Monday the 3rd of March 2014. The workshop will take place in the afternoon from 13:30 to 17:30 - for further details see the Programme page.
