The EMOTE project was one of the selected EU projects to be in exhibition at ICT 2015!
Our GAIPS team was there presenting one of the EMOTE scenarios to EU Comissioner Günther Oettinger, Pedro Cabrita Carneiro vice-president of FCT, and Carlos Manuel Castro from the Lisbon City Hall (CML).
ICT is the main european event on digital technology and is organized by the European Comission. This year it's happening in Lisbon, and holds an exhibition that is open to the general public, so that everyone can see how research can impact people's lives.
The exhibition is located at Terreiro do Paço (Praça do Comércio) and runs until October 22nd.
We had 3 papers accepted at 2015 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games. Two related to Geometry Friends Game AI Competition and one to project EMOTE.
Nao, the empathic robotic-tutor developed by the EMOTE project, is in school for two months to teach about sustainable development.
Students from the Quinta do Marquês School have been learning about geography topics with the empathic robotic-tutor.
The robot helps them discover how a sustainable city can be developed, and how challenging this process can be.
Long-term studies in real world environments are such an amazing experience!
