What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Robot
  • Cognition

Kerstin Dautenhahn mainly focuses on Robot, Artificial intelligence, Human–computer interaction, Human–robot interaction and Social robot. Kerstin Dautenhahn combines subjects such as Context, Imitation and Autism with her study of Robot. Kerstin Dautenhahn has included themes like Cognitive psychology and Computer vision in her Artificial intelligence study.

Her Human–computer interaction research includes themes of Embodied cognition, Intelligent agent, Cognition, Developmental robotics and Gesture. The Human–robot interaction study combines topics in areas such as Design rationale, Task and Engineering ethics. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Social intelligence, Robot learning, Personal robot, Communication and Media Lab Europe's social robots.

Her most cited work include:

  • A survey of socially interactive robots (2152 citations)
  • Socially intelligent robots: dimensions of human-robot interaction. (631 citations)
  • Robotic assistants in therapy and education of children with autism: can a small humanoid robot help encourage social interaction skills? (507 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Robot, Human–computer interaction, Artificial intelligence, Human–robot interaction and Social robot are her primary areas of study. Her Robot study incorporates themes from Context, Cognitive psychology and Autism. Her work deals with themes such as Multimedia, Cognition, Gesture and Set, which intersect with Human–computer interaction.

Her Artificial intelligence research incorporates themes from Imitation and Computer vision. Her study in Human–robot interaction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Communication, Task, Applied psychology, Simulation and Special needs. Her Social robot research includes themes of Robot learning and Personal robot.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Robot (59.62%)
  • Human–computer interaction (41.86%)
  • Artificial intelligence (39.32%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Robot (59.62%)
  • Human–computer interaction (41.86%)
  • Human–robot interaction (31.08%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her main research concerns Robot, Human–computer interaction, Human–robot interaction, Social robot and Humanoid robot. Her Robot study deals with the bigger picture of Artificial intelligence. Her Human–computer interaction research incorporates elements of Special needs, Robot control and Domestic robot.

The concepts of her Human–robot interaction study are interwoven with issues in Narrative, Key, Proxemics, Simulation and Robotic systems. Her research integrates issues of Social psychology, Interpersonal relationship, Cognitive science and Personal robot in her study of Social robot. Her work carried out in the field of Humanoid robot brings together such families of science as Context, Developmental psychology, Autism, Social skills and Social acceptance.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Would You Trust a (Faulty) Robot?: Effects of Error, Task Type and Personality on Human-Robot Cooperation and Trust (210 citations)
  • Principles of robotics: regulating robots in the real world (71 citations)
  • Using a Humanoid Robot to Elicit Body Awareness and Appropriate Physical Interaction in Children with Autism (58 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition
  • Programming language

Her primary areas of study are Robot, Human–computer interaction, Human–robot interaction, Social robot and Humanoid robot. Kerstin Dautenhahn studies Robot, namely Assistive robot. Her Human–computer interaction research includes elements of Developmental robotics and Artificial intelligence.

Her Artificial intelligence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Software and Computer vision. Her studies in Human–robot interaction integrate themes in fields like Developmental cognitive neuroscience, Context, Simulation and Personality psychology. Her research investigates the connection between Humanoid robot and topics such as Autism that intersect with issues in Cognitive psychology, Viewpoints and User requirements document.
