Abstract:
This paper describes the current work on using humanoid robot to augment traditional storytelling for educational and entertainment purposes in casual contexts such as home and classroom. We explore a novel method of Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) for storytelling and address the question how robots may best augment storytelling. In the pilot study, a humanoid robot, Aldebaran's Nao, was programmed to recite a story to 60 students aged 14 to 15. Nao delivered the performance as either an independent storyteller, or as a collaborator with a human storyteller. We assessed the effectiveness of HRC by comparing the participants' preference over the two settings. We found that 1) most participants prefer HRC over the robot-only performance (RO) and considered HRC effective; and 2) the preference in HRC is explained by the complementary strengths of the robot and human storyteller in interacting with the participants. These results, provide a first step towards effective use of robots for collaborative storytelling in daily situations.
