Abstract

This paper presents the factor of designing an anthropomorphic agent such as a communication robot and an embodied communicative agent. Communication is a cooperative phenomenon between participants. People involved in a communication speak and hear actively during the conversation. However, it is difficult to engage them in the communication with a robot because they seldom actively consider the communicative intention of the robot. The paper explains the importance of social relationship between a human and a robot for engaging people in the communication. In particular, we consider how the relation makes them consider the intention of the robot. Also, I show what factors of the robot design elicit the social relation.
