(ScienceDailyNews) Scientists have developed a drumming robot that plays along with human keyboard players and posts pictures of the sessions on Facebook. The study, by researchers at Queen Mary University of London, looks at how humans interact with robots over time and in particular how social media can enhance that relationship.
Lead author Louis McCallum, from Queen Mary’s School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, said: “We’d previously uncovered new and exciting findings that suggested open-ended creative activities could be a strong bedrock to build long-term human-robot relationships. This particular research sought to examine whether the relationships that were initially developed face-to-face, but under lab conditions, could be extended to the more open, but virtual, realm of social media.”
