In this paper we present the results of an experimental study investigating the application of human persuasive strategies to a social robot. We demonstrate that robot displays of goodwill and similarity to the participant significantly increased rob... Read More about Effective persuasion strategies for socially assistive robots.

Mutual shaping in the design of socially assistive robots: A case study on social robots for therapy (2019)
Journal Article
Winkle, K., Caleb-Solly, P., Turton, A., & Bremner, P. (in press). Mutual shaping in the design of socially assistive robots: A case study on social robots for therapy. International Journal of Social Robotics, 1-20. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12369-019-00536-9

This paper offers a case study in undertaking a mutual shaping approach to the design of socially assistive robots. We consider the use of social robots in therapy, and we present our results regarding this application, but the approach is generalisa...
