About this Research Topic
The International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction (HAI) aims to discuss and disseminate state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research on the design, development, and evaluation of robotic agents and their interaction with human users in a variety of contexts and application areas. Robotic agent systems come in a wide spectrum of formats such as virtual agents, physical robots, and artificially intelligent agents, extending from domestic robots to drones. This Research Topic aims to collect the best papers resulting from the 8th edition of the international conference on human-agent interaction (HAI2020). As such, we are eagerly inviting selected researchers who submitted to the HAI2020 conference to consider extending their submissions to be featured in this Research Topic. Papers that receive excellent reviews may be selected to receive article processing charge discounts.
The theme for this edition of the conference will center around studying the intersection of embodied artificial intelligence and Human-Agent Interaction. The advent of artificial intelligence systems in the past decade has motivated researchers to focus on several technological prospects for developing intelligent robotic agents and their interactions across a range of scenarios and domain areas. AI advances are leading to exciting progressive developments in the HAI field and at the same time allowed for a wider perspective on the design of intelligent robotic agents that can operate seamlessly and with a degree of autonomy in the real world.
Research in HAI covers a broad range of disciplines including engineering, computer science, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, business, marking, and design. In this Research Topic, we welcome the best papers from the 8th edition of the HAI conference. Please note that contributions to this Research Topic are from selected researchers only.
