Smart Learning Partner: An Interactive Robot for Education
Driven by the latest technologies in artificial intelligence (e.g., natural language processing and emotion recognition), we design a novel robot system, called smart learning partner, to provide a more pleasurable learning experience and better motivate learners. The self-determination theory is used as the guideline to design its human-robot interaction. The large-scale deployment of SLP in local schools and families would bring both research and commercial opportunities.
