AI: Cutting-Edge Overviews & Tutorials with Dr Nicole Salomons

Talk Title
Personalization in Human-Robot Interaction

Abstract
Robots possess great potential to enhance the experiences of their users. However, every individual they engage with presents a unique set of requirements and preferences. In this talk, Dr Salomons will explore the concept of personalization in human-robot interaction, by presenting several strategies by which robots can tailor their interactions to personalize for the distinct needs of each user. Furthermore, she will delve into various practical applications wherein personalized robotics can significantly enrich the user experience, such as in tutoring and in long-term in-home robotic systems.
