This course focuses on human-robot interaction and social robot learning, exploring the leading research, design principles and technical challenges we face in developing robots capable of operating in real-world human environments. The course will cover a range of multidisciplinary topics, including physical embodiment, mixed-initiative interaction, multi-modal interfaces, human-robot teamwork, learning algorithms, statistical methods for HRI research, aspects of social cognition, as well as ethical and societal considerations. These topics will be pursued through independent reading, class discussion, case studies and a final project.
