Empathy & Theory of Mind

It is impressive to assist everyday ability of understanding others' behaviour and emotional state. It is more impressive if we think that we are able to do that very easily and with incomplete or noisy information and in disparate contexts.

Robots able to observe others' behaviour and infer the mental state of the persons might be useful in order to facilitate our life, helping us when necessary and providing correct information.

Currently I am investigating empathy and related challenges in Theory of Mind. I am exploring both Simulation-Theory and Theory-Theory models, in order to develop a suitable model of empathy and Theory of Mind for social robots.

...In a nutshell
  • Human-Robot interaction
  • Simulation-Theory
  • Theory-Theory
