Data Mining For Social Robotics (2015)

Author Yasser Mohammad and Toyoaki Nishida

Summary This book explores an approach to social robotics based solely on autonomous unsupervised techniques and positions it within a structured exposition of related research in psychology, neuroscience, HRI, and data mining.  The authors present an autonomous and developmental approach that allows the robot to learn interactive behavior by imitating humans using algorithms from time-series analysis and machine learning.

Conversational Informatics: A Data-Intensive Approach (2014)

Author: T. Nishida, A. Nakazawa, Y. Ohmoto, and Yasser Mohammad

Summary: This book covers an approach to conversational informatics which encompasses science and technology for understanding and augmenting conversation in the network age. A major challenge in engineering is to develop a technology for conveying not just messages but also underlying wisdom. Relevant theories and practices in cognitive linguistics and communication science, as well as techniques developed in computational linguistics and artificial intelligence, are discussed.
