PhD proposal (not funded). Detailed subject.

This PHD thesis follows our previous work in three research projects funded by the French national research Agency (ANR): ANR CECIL project, ANR MOCA project and ANR SOMBRERO project. These projects have contributed to the ongoing development of our Cognitive and Affective Interaction-Oriented architecture called CAIO (see Best Late Breaking Report Nomination paper [10]).

The goals of this PhD thesis are threefold:

·      to fully implement this architecture and experimentation scenarios, using a lightweight humanoid robot (for instance a Nao robot)

·      to propose an evaluation method and criteria, and apply this to experimentally evaluate the architecture at all stages of development

·      to identify from these experimentations the necessary additions to improve the social capabilities of robots endowed with this architecture, and to realise some of these, for instance:

o   automatic activity analysis to learn socially acceptable interaction models;

o   multimodal perception of the user, including their emotions;

o   impact of emotions on various cognitive processes (memory, planning...).
