HRI 2007

The Human-Robot Interaction 2007 conference was in DC a week ago. Apparently, two robots talking to each other is better at attracting attention than one robot talking to itself -- more socially interesting (best paper by ATR/Osaka), and the Roomba gets whole families involved in cleaning more than standard vacuums (runner up for best paper by Jodi Forlizzi). Of course, my talk was great too :) It may be reported in "New Scientist" within the next few days...
