human-robot collaboration & companionship lab

The Human-Robot Collaboration & Companionship (HRC2) Lab at Cornell is headed by Guy Hoffman and studies the the computational, engineering, and social aspects of interactions between humans and robots. Our mission is to understand the complex interplay between human behaviors, attitudes, and needs & personal robotic technologies in order to design robots that best support human values.

Research interests include: human-robot teamwork and collaboration; personal robotic companions; non-anthropomorphic robot design; AI and machine learning for human-robot interaction (HRI); effects of introducing robots in the workplace; robot assistants for cognitive tasks; timing and fluency in HRI and multi-agent MDPs; entertainment, theater, and musical performance robots; robot improvisation; and nonverbal communication in HRI.
