Robotics and Emotional Intelligence: Myths, Fantasies and Reality

Speaker: Laurence Devillers, Professor of Computer Science at Paris-Sorbonne University; LIMSI-CNRS lab researcher; Head, Affective and Social Dimension in Spoken Interaction

Developing a social relationship and an emotional bond with machines is no longer a science-fiction writer’s vision. Laurence Devillers, whose research focuses on human-machine interaction as well as emotional and moral computing, invites us to think about the role of robots in our society, especially in the health, well-being, and education areas.
