Teaching and Working with Robots as a Collaboration
New applications for autonomous robots bring them into the human environment where they are to serve as helpful assistants to untrained users in the home or office, or work as capable members of human-robot teams for security, military, and space efforts. These applications require robots to be able to quickly learn how to perform new tasks from natural human instruction, and to perform tasks collaboratively with human teammates. Using joint intention theory as our theoretical framework, our approach integrates learning and collaboration through a goal based task structure. Specifically, we use collaborative discourse with accompanying gestures and social cues to teach a humanoid robot a structurally complex task. Having learned the representation for the task, the robot then performs it shoulder-to-shoulder with a human partner, using social communication acts to dynamically mesh its plans with those of its partner, according to the relative capabilities of the human and the robot....
