Adaptable AI-enabled Robots to Encourage the Challenge of New Activities

This special issue focuses on how to create a future society coexisting with AI-enabled robots that encourages all people to actively participate in society. This is a smarter inclusive society in which multiple types of AI-enabled robots are appropriately selected, and they adjust the functions for adapting to the individual user to provide appropriate assistance. This special issue considers not only the development of such adaptable AI-enabled robots but also how to design robot behaviors that improve the user's subjective feelings such as self-efficacy and sense of agency by providing support. Adaptable AI-enabled robots are expected to be applied in many fields such as nursing care, rehabilitation, education, and sports. This special issue expects to submit the research papers that AI-enabled robots encourage the challenge of new activities for users in these various fields. Furthermore, this special issue includes topics of safety, risk management, and ELSI considered in the future society with above mentioned AI-enabled robots for social implementation.

Recommended Topics:
