Abstract

The robots are getting more and more into our lives. However, to become an integral part of daily life, they should be socially accepted by the humans. Evidently, the acceptance rate will increase as human-robot interaction gets closer to human-human interaction. in this study, a web-based information filtering system, which enables a humanoid robot to initiate interaction with a human by generating human-like daily conversations, is developed.
