@inproceedings { yadollahi20, abstract = {One of the numerous approaches that increases the interaction qual- ity between two people is having a proper understanding of the other person’s perspective. In this doctoral thesis, we aim to under- stand children’s perspective taking behavior, create a perspective taking framework for social robots, and evaluate the framework in educational scenarios and real-life interactions. The research started by designing tasks that allow us to analyze and decompose children’s decision-making mechanisms in terms of their perspec- tive taking choices. We collect data from series of studies that cap- ture the dynamic between the child and the robot using dierent perspective taking tasks and develop a complementary adaptive model for the robot. This article summarizes the perspective tak- ing tasks, experimental studies, and future works for developing a comprehensive model of perspective taking for social robots.}, booktitle = {Companion of the 2020 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction}, keywords = {Affective Computing;Intelligent Virtual Agents;Social Robotic Companions;}, pages = {612--614}, title = {Changing Perspective as A Learning Mechanism}, year = {2020}, author = {Elmira Yadollahi and Pierre Dillenbourg and Ana Paiva} }
