CHILDROBOT present at InScience 2018

This November, we visited the InScience International Science Film Festival with our NAO robot. We collected very interesting data and, based on that, are currently developing a follow-up study. We would like to thank all the children that participated in this study and the InScience team for having us at this great festival!

Data collection completed: thanks to all!

Over the past few weeks, we took our robot to six primary schools across The Netherlands. We finished our data collection at PCBO de Bouwhof: the primary school Caroline attended! Many thanks to all schools, teachers, parents, and – in particular – to all the children who participated in our research. The data collection is complete, but we’ll meet again once we have the results!

Chiara in Genoa for ARSO’18

Last September, we had the pleasure of visiting the International Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts (ARSO) in the beautiful city of Genoa. Chiara presented one of our future studies, and we learned a lot about the potential impact of artificial intelligence and autonomous systems on society.
