Best Paper Award at CogInfoCom 2016 Conference


Duc-Canh Nguyen, PhD Student in CRISSP Team, Gérard Bailly and Frédéric Elisei received a Best Paper Award of the 7th IEEE International Conference on Cognitive InfoCommunications wich was held from 16th to 18th October, 2016 in Wroclaw (Poland)

Socially assistive robot with interactive behavioral capability have been improving quality of life for wide range of population user by taking care for elderly, training individuals with cognitive disabilities or physical rehabilitation, etc. While the interactive behavioral policies of most systems are scripted, the authors discuss here key features of a new methodology they developed in the framework of the SOMBRERO project that enables professional caregivers to teach a socially assistive robot (SAR) how to perform the assistive tasks while giving proper instructions, demonstrations and feedbacks. Also, the authors suppose using online subjective evaluation methods for gesture controllers, action modules of robot performing the multimodal interactive behaviors, in order to diagnose and improve incorrect interactive behaviors of their SAR.


Nguyen, D.-C., G. Bailly and D. Elisei (2016) Conducting neuropsychological tests with a humanoid robot: design and evaluation. IEEE Int. Conf. on Cognitive Infocommunications (CogInfoCom), Wroclaw, Poland.


Cognitive infocommunications (CogInfoCom) is an interdisciplinary research field that has emerged as a synergy between infocommunications and the cognitive sciences. One of the key observations behind CogInfoCom is that through a convergence process between these fields, humans and ICT are becoming entangled at various levels, as a result of which new forms of cognitive capability are appearing. Crucially, these capabilities are neither purely natural (i.e., human), nor purely artificial; therefore, it is suggested that they should be treated in a way that unifies both engineering and human-oriented perspectives.
