Empowering People in Human-Robot Collaboration: Bringing Together and Synthesising Perspectives
Researchers from the Australian Cobotics Centre and CSIRO are organising an in-person workshop at OzCHI 2022.
There is growing awareness that the future of robotics is a collaborative one. Although rapid technological advancements are driving the development and maturation of robotics platforms across a range of domains, the methods by which people work with these platforms remains a largely open question. Unpacking this solution requires a multifaceted approach with key contributions from diverse fields and disciplines, including user modelling, adaptive interfaces, persistent communication, interaction design, human factors, and situational awareness.
This workshop intends to discuss the opportunities, threats, and future of collaborative robotics, by incorporating multidisciplinary perspectives. We invite researchers and practitioners in Human-Computer Interaction, Robotics and Engineering, Ethics, Psychology, Social Sciences, Design, Architecture, and Artificial Intelligence to join us in exploring the requirements for next-generation human-robot collaboration and synthesising a path towards the future where people and robots work hand in hand.
Note: There will be a small fee to attend the workshop, with details to be provided soon. One author must also register for at least one day of the OzCHI 2022 conference.
All times are within the Anywhere on Earth (AoE) time zone.
