A Geminoid as Lecturer
In this paper we report our findings from an experiment with the tele-operated android Geminoid-DK. The geminoid took up the role of a university lecturer and delivered a 45 minute lecture in front of 150 freshmen students at Aalborg University. While considering the role of the geminoid in this educational context, we report results relating to large-room teaching, as well as gender differences in the perception of the robot.
