-We will decide the exact question after discussing. One possibility is: Touch is a powerful communication modality whose code we are just recently beginning to crack--we want to know how robots can leverage social touch in interactions to help people to feel good. Another possibility is to do something about robots/AI in education or for healthcare. -Software -WPs will include gathering requirements then creating an architecture, a recognition module, and behavior generation module, and getting feedback on the design. -The project should lead to a paper. Demos/events (or for education, something which we can actually use with our students) would be nice.
