Repartitions of social annotations in the PInSoRo dataset

October 2018

Our paper The PInSoRo dataset: Supporting the data-driven study of child-child and child-robot social dynamics presenting the details of the PInSoRo dataset has just been published in open-access in PLOS ONE. If you are looking for a large (45+ hours) dataset of annotated, naturalistic child-child and child-robot social interaction, have a read, and download the dataset!

I have been invited to give a keynote at the AAAI Fall Symposium 2017. I'll be talking about our new dataset of child social interaction and how deep learning could be a way forward for social robotics. The slides are online.

Update! We have been awarded the Best 'Design' Paper Award for our paper on the Cellulo robot. Great!

We have two papers accepted for presentation at the HRI 2017 conference next March in Vienna!

The first one presents Cellulo, the new little robots we have created at EPFL: small, cheap, 'child-proof', holonomic and self-localised, they might well be the future of robotics in the classroom! And we already have many ideas how to use them to enhance learning in innovative ways, like this real-world simulation of molecules.

The second one reports on the results of our experimentations with automatic speech recognition for children: to put it simply, it does not work yet :-) Our dataset is online.
