Grants: RCTA work gets funded! $50,000

I'm happy to say that my proposal for a project with the Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance (RCTA) 2017 was selected for funding.

Grant title: Appropriate calibrations of trust for supporting soldier-robot teaming, PI: Elizabeth Phillips, Brown University, Funded by General Dynamics Land Systems, $50,000

Overview after the break

This post is coming a bit late, but a few months back some colleagues and I submitted a journal article manuscript to the ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (TiiS) special issue on Trust and Influence in Intelligent Human-Machine Interaction. We're really excited about this piece and hope to hear back about it soon.

Recently, I was really fortunate to lend my expertise in experimental design and HRI studies with human users, to collaborate on a paper with researchers in Brown's Computer Science Department, the Humans 2 Robots Lab on a paper for the 2017 IROS conference

Before the vacation was a made dash to finish a number of conference submissions, including two for HFES 2017. Hoping these will get in so that I can see my Human Factors Colleagues in Austin in October. 

Submitted paper titles: 

  • What does a robot look like?: A multi-site examination of user expectations about robot form

  • Robot Self-Assessment and Expression: A Framework
