Conversational Turn-Taking & Social Robotics

Calling a company and dealing with a system-initiated IVR is the extent of most people’s experience interacting with a spoken dialogue system. This will change with social robots. What is the etiquette when conversing with a robot? Who talks when? What are the boundaries of acceptable things to say? With each evolutionary step forward, the rules of turn-taking shift. We focus on the fascinating challenges faced by the Jibo design team while creating the foundations for a human-robot conversation.
