This project aims to realize a society of human-robot symbiosis, in which humans and robots mutually learn from each other based on trust relationship.
Symbiosis robots have a potential to actively mediate humans’ information exchange. In other words, beyond the role of interaction target, the robot can be a creative partner for promoting people’s collaborative creation of new knowledge. For example, with robots capable of being a good partner, people will be able to produce creative and intelligent outcomes through collaboration with others as well as reflecting self thoughts and acts.
For this future society, we found a new research area where robotics, cognitive science and learning science collaborate each other.
