Hooman Samani is director of the Artificial Intelligence and
Robotics Technology Laboratory (AIART Lab) and an assistant
professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, College of
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, National Taipei
His career in robotics and artificial intelligence research has spanned many countries including Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and Iran. He was awarded a PhD from the Graduate School for Integrative Science and Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering Department, National University of Singapore. After obtaining his PhD, he became a Research Fellow at the Keio-NUS CUTE Center, which is a collaborative research center with locations in both the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Keio University in Japan.
His proposed research topic is Lovotics, which involves multidisciplinary research in artificial intelligence for human-robot affective relationships. This research comprises several topics including robotics, engineering, computer science, interaction design, philosophy, psychology, mathematics, computational neuroscience, art, and computational intelligence, for developing a truly interactive robot with pragmatic affection. Lovotics robots, Kissenger, Mini-Surrogate, and XOXO are some novel applications of Lovotics research.
"...this work serves as an introduction to cognition in the
field of artificial intelligence. An interesting discussion occurs
in the chapter entitled "When Robots Do Wrong," which can be read
and interpreted in different ways by social scientists, as opposed
to those in mathematics, computer science, or the hard sciences.
The chapter contains fascinating discourse on negligence and
product liability, as well as sections on whether to blame the
robot or the human developer when an issue arises. The book covers
a breadth of topics that investigate cognitive robots and their
interaction with elements of philosophy, chemicals, physical
science, culture and society, psychology, and general artificial
intelligence. Each chapter is authored by a range of individuals
and contains its own set of references... Summing Up: Recommended.
