Their website seems a little out of date. However, having just discovered this project a new post seemed appropriate. I’m not quite sure I fully understand their approach or indeed this statement from their About Us page which says they want “to investigate how socially situated development can be brought to robots that grow up and adapt to humans in everyday environments.” I get the feeling that something is slightly lost in translation here. The notion that I may have to wait for my new and very expensive robot to ‘grow up’ is not quite what I was expecting? More importantly, there are some really good papers on their link for Publications and lastly, their conviction that interdiciplinarity is the way forward for robotics definitely works for Sociorobotics.
