As intelligent autonomous robots increasingly become part of our lives, the field of human-robot interaction seeks to understand and improve all aspects of interactions between humans and robots.
Human-Robot Interaction is an interdisciplinary effort aimed at understanding and improving all aspects of interactions between humans and robots. It draws on knowledge from computer science, mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as psychology, philosophy, anthropology, legal fields, among various others.
Cutting across the engineering and social sciences, human-robot interaction research is a paradigmatic multi- and inter-disciplinary program with enormous future societal benefits.
