The workshop is organized on the occasion of the inauguration of the Labcom, a joint laboratory between the LIRIS Laboratory and the Hoomano company, funded by the ANR. This workshop is colocated with the SIDO 2019 event, which topic this year is IoT, AI and Robotics, and where more than 300 exhibitors are expected. The workshop will offer the opportunity to researchers, practitioners, students and all persons interested by the topic of AI and social robotics, to discover the project and attend scientific talks presented by prestigious experts in the area of Human-Robot Interaction.



Dr. Yukie Nagai

Senior Researcher, National Institute of Information and Communications Technology Visiting Professor, Bielefeld University Guest Associate Professor, Osaka University

Development of social cognition in robots

Dr. Yukie Nagai has been investigating underlying neural mechanisms for social cognitive development by means of computational approach. She designs neural network models for robots to learn to acquire cognitive functions such as self-other cognition, estimation of others’ intention and emotion, altruism, and so on based on her theory of predictive learning. The simulator reproducing atypical perception in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which has been developed by her group, greatly impacts on the society as it enables people with and without ASD to better understand potential causes for social difficulties. She is the research director of JST CREST Cognitive Mirroring since December 2016.
