Bolsa de Investigação para Licenciado - Projecto AMIGOS
Candidates with a Licentiate Degree (BI-L) - AMIGOS Project

Type of Position: Research Fellowship (Bolsa de Investigação)

Duration: 6 Months

Closed at: 2017-Jun-08

Description

Objectives/Summary:

The AMIGOS project investigates the role of emotions and adaptation in interactions between a robot and a group of users, contrasting to the typical one¬-robot one¬-user paradigm in Human-¬Robot Interaction (HRI). Despite the complex social challenges that long¬-term HRI will soon bring, so far little is known about how perception and action selection systems, typically designed for one-¬to-¬one interactions, will perform in multiparty settings. In the AMGOS project the team will address the issue of social adaptation and collaboration for robots in group settings focusing on computational modeling of emotions.

To endow robots with the ability to cope with changes in the number of users around it, in the AMIGOS project we will use of interactive machine learning techniques that allow the robot to quickly adjust its behavior, depending on both the situational context (i.e., the number of users in the environment) and the preferences of a particular user, and generate adaptive social responses.

The goal of this Research Assistant position is to research this new and challenging topic, contribute for the development of a scenario that uses multiparty situations with a robot to foster creativity in children.

Duration:

The grant has duration of 6 months from June 10th , 2017. The grant may be renewed within the period of the project, not exceeding the maximum period set by FCT for such grants. Renewal is subject to suitable performance.

Required education Level and research experience:

The successful candidate is expected to have a Licentiate’ degree (BSc) in computer science, electrical engineering, or related area, with good programming skills and experience in one (or more) of the following area:

• Socio-emotional computational models of behaviour

• Human-Robot and Human-Agent Interaction

• Computational Creativity

The candidates will be evaluated according to their academic record, including:

• (70%) Academic record of the candidate (including performance in related courses, publication record and past experience in research projects) and relevance of the research areas of the candidate with respect to the goals of the project;
