Human Robot Interaction Conference 2018

Human Robot Interaction Conference 2018

Last week, I attended the 13th Annual ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human Robot Interaction in Chicago, Illinois USA. Many great researchers from across the world attended this conference under the theme “Robots for Social Good”. It was very interesting to see other people’s work and their results from the last year/s. I had some really interesting conversations, and I also presented our latest work (The Way You Move – The Effect of a Robot Surrogate Movement in Remote Collaboration) during a poster session. I was surprised how broad this research field actually is; from work on social and ethical aspects of human-robot interaction all the way up to novel algorithms and implementations. I really enjoyed the variety of publications, and I am very happy that I got the opportunity to attend HRI 2018.
