  • Creation and Staging of Android Theatre “Sayonara”towards Developing Highly Human-Like Robots
    Future Internet, 2017
    Co-Authors: Takenobu Chikaraishi, Yuichiro Yoshikawa, Kohei Ogawa, Oriza Hirata, Hiroshi Ishiguro

    Abstract:

    Even after long-term exposures, Androids with a strikingly human-like appearance evoke unnatural feelings. The behavior that would induce human-like feelings after long exposures is difficult to determine, and it often depends on the cultural background of the observers. Therefore, in this study, we generate an acting performance system for the Android, in which an Android and a human interact in a stage play in the real world. We adopt the theatrical theory called Contemporary Colloquial Theatre Theory to give the Android natural behaviors so that audiences can comfortably observe it even after long-minute exposure. A stage play is created and shown in various locations, and the audiences are requested to report their impressions of the stage and their cultural and psychological backgrounds in a self-evaluating questionnaire. Overall analysis indicates that the audience had positive feelings, in terms of attractiveness, towards the Android on the stage even after 20 min of exposure. The singularly high acceptance of the Android by Japanese audiences seems to be correlated with a high animism tendency, rather than to empathy. We also discuss how the stage play approach is limited and could be extended to contribute to realization of human–robot interaction in the real world.

  • Acceptability of a Teleoperated Android by Senior Citizens in Danish Society
    International Journal of Social Robotics, 2014
    Co-Authors: Ryuji Yamazaki, Hiroshi Ishiguro, Shuichi Nishio, Marco Norskov, Nobu Ishiguro, Giuseppe Balistreri

    Abstract:

    We explore the potential of teleoperated Androids, which are embodied telecommunication media with humanlike appearances. By conducting a pilot study, we investigated how Telenoid, a teleoperated Android designed as a minimalistic human, affects people in the real world when it is employed to express telepresence and a sense of ‘being there’. Our exploratory study focused on the social aspects of the Android robot, which might facilitate communication between the elderly and Telenoid’s operator. This new way of creating social relationships can be used to solve a problem in society, the social isolation of senior citizens. It has become a major issue even in Denmark that is known as one of countries with advanced welfare systems. In this pilot study at Danish homes, we found that the elderly with or without dementia showed positive attitudes toward Telenoid and developed various dialogue strategies. Contrary to the issue of revulsion that can be caused by humanlike robots and the negative reactions by non-users in media reports, we discuss potentials and challenges of the Android’s embodiment for social inclusion of senior citizens in telecommunications.

  • Teleoperated Android Robot as Emotion Regulation Media
    International Journal of Social Robotics, 2013
    Co-Authors: Shuichi Nishio, Koichi Taura, Hidenobu Sumioka, Hiroshi Ishiguro

    Abstract:

    In this paper, we experimentally examined whether changes in the facial\nexpressions of teleoperated Androids could affect and regulate operators’\nemotion, based on the facial feedback theory of emotion and the phenomenon\nof body ownership transfer to the robot. Twenty-six Japanese participants\nhad conversations with an experimenter based on a situation where\nparticipants feel anger and, during the conversation, the Android’s\nfacial expression changed according to a pre-programmed scheme. The\nresults showed that the facial feedback from the Android did occur.\nMoreover, by comparing the two groups of participants, one with operating\nthe robot and another without operating it, we found that this facial\nfeedback from the Android robot occur only when participants operated\nthe robot and, when an operator could effectively operate the robot,\nhis/her emotional states were much affected by facial expression\nchange of the robot.

  • The Future of Android: The 64-Bit Android 5.0 OS
    Android Apps for Absolute Beginners, 2014
    Co-Authors: Wallace Jackson

    Abstract:

    As the third edition of this book was going to press, Google announced a 64-bit Android 5.0 L version of its popular operating system at the Google I/O trade show. Although Android hardware devices running this version of Android will not be available in large numbers until 2015, I decided to take this opportunity to add a “Future of Android” chapter covering what was different in the 64-bit Android 5 OS and how to develop applications for it. By doing so, this book covers developing for Android versions 1 through 5 and beyond!

  • RV – RV-Android: Efficient Parametric Android Runtime Verification, a Brief Tutorial
    Runtime Verification, 2015
    Co-Authors: Philip Daian, Yliès Falcone, Traian Florin Serbanuta, Shin’ichi Shiriashi, Akihito Iwai, Patrick O'neil Meredith, Grigore Rosu

    Abstract:

    RV-Android is a new freely available open source runtime library for monitoring formal safety properties on Android. RV-Android uses the commercial RV-Monitor technology as its core monitoring library generation technology, allowing for the verification of safety properties during execution and operating entirely in userspace with no kernel or operating system modifications required. RV-Android improves on previous Android monitoring work by replacing the JavaMOP framework with RV-Monitor, a more advanced monitoring library generation tool with core algorithmic improvements that greatly improve resource consumption, efficiency, and battery life considerations. We demonstrate the developer usage of RV-Android with the standard Android build process, using instrumentation mechanisms effective on both Android binaries and source code. Our method allows for both property development and advanced application testing through runtime verification. We showcase the user frontend of RV-Monitor, which is available for public demo use and requires no knowledge of RV concepts. We explore the extra expressiveness the MOP paradigm provides over simply writing properties as aspects through two sample security properties, and show an example of a real security violation mitigated by RV-Android on-device. Lastly, we propose RV as an extension to the next-generation Android permissions system debuting in Android M.
