Conference Talk "Social norms in Human-Robot interaction" : Symposium "NORMS AND COMMITMENTS IN HUMAN-ROBOT COOPERATIVE INTERACTIONS" org. Elisabeth Pacherie Abstract Social norms are spontaneously emergent patterns of coordinated behaviour that organize how individuals behave towards each other in accordance with social expectations about what and how an individual ought to do in a given situation. They improve how agents collectively manage, and reduce the cognitive costs associated with interaction generally. Basing HRI in social norms can be expected to have advantages that would include meeting the motivational and predictive challenges. However, social norms present a challenge for HRI, being notoriously difficult to implement. I will discuss the advantages of an approach to HRI based in social norms, granted that the implementation problem can be handled in a satisfactory way, and compare it to other approaches. Then, I will briefly address the implementation problem and sketch a way of dealing with it.
