講  題:Using Companion Robots for Education

Abstract: A companion robot is defined as a device consisting of a physical robot component that connects to Cloud services to improve the ease and productivity of activities through networking, multi-media and sensory technologies. It is believed that robotic computing can provide a good experience to engage university and pre-university students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. Many studies found out that anthropomorphic designs of what robots are, what they can do, and how they should be understood resulted in greater user engagement within the history of Western countries. Cultural differences may influence human-robot interaction with different social norms and cultural traits, especially in West and East. In contrary to the Western image of robots as frightening machines, there is a different culture in the East. To let the robotic computing technology, develop without national boundaries, it is necessary for us to consider different cultures during the design and development phases in robotic computing. This talk discusses several education studies on companion robots from this socio-technical perspective.
