Ana Paiva, INESC-ID researcher at the Interactive Intelligent Systems (IIS) Group has recently been invited as keynote speaker in two major conferences, UMAP 2018 (User Modelling, Adaptation and Personalization) and AAMAS 2018 (International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems) which took place, respectively, in Singapore and Stockholm.

The presentations are the results of her most recent work that focuses on the affective and social elements present in the interactions between humans and robots more specifically on how to engineer natural and positive relationships with social robots.

Both conferences are of high relevance in their fields with some of the most prestigious researchers: AAMAS  in the area of agents and multiagent systems and UMAP on user modelling, adaptation and personalization.
