We got an extended abstracted accepted for presentation during this workshop where exposed the purpose of the AMIGOS project and all the work we have so far. Check out at the publications section!
We have recently been accepted to present a paper at Robotics: Science and Systems Conference. The team game of Sueca allowed us to explore different team formations and what are the membership preferences of humans when partnering with robots. This paper reports the first results from the previous user study, conducted a year ago. Check out the paper at the publications section but stay tuned to upcoming news...
During the past two months, the team developed and tested two robots with different goal orientations for a specific task. Using the Sueca card game scenario, the idea was to study the preferences of participants when choosing a robotic player to partner with. The results will be revealed soon.
AMIGOS project has just started. The team had a meeting to discuss the next steps in order to achieve the proposed goals. More information about the project is available here.
