Humor in Healthcare Waiting Rooms to Enhance Human-Robot Interaction

In this project we use Theatre Arts performance methodologies for an assistive robot to serve the participants in the Office of Student Disabilities, Lakewood Village Retirement Community, and the main office for The Dept. of Theatre Arts. This is a study to inform how Human—Robot Interaction (HRI), specifically the use of improvisational humor in an assistive robot, may positively impact attitudes between humans and robots.
