Measuring the Quality of Interaction

This talk was given on 3rd February 2016 by Frank Foerster.

Abstract
In this talk I will give an (incomplete) overview of recently proposed quantitative measurements which are ought to serve as indicators for quality of interaction between humans and robots and which form the basis of my future research.

The measurements under consideration, frequently linked to the mirror neuron system, are motor interference, motor contagion, or automatic imitation and might be thought of particular expressions of the more general construct of motor resonance.

Most of these measurements have been taken within interactionally very restrictive setups, and I will therefore reflect critically about some of the underlying assumptions and expected difficulties when trying to employ these measurements in more realistic interaction scenarios.
