Learning about human robot cooperation with a game Prisoner's dilemma with Anki Cozmo
Recommendation on how to design robots for best human-robot interaction
As robots become increasingly prevalent in social settings, it's important to understand how people interact with them. A recent study by researchers at SoBA Lab at University of Glasgow investigated how people can cooperate with robots in economic games, specifically the prisoner's dilemma game.
Prisoner’s dilemma is a game between two players where each player must choose between cooperation and defection. If both players cooperate, they both receive a moderate reward. If one player defects and the other cooperates, the defector receives a high reward and the cooperator receives a low reward. If both players defect, they both receive a low reward. The game is designed to test how people balance their own self-interest with the desire to cooperate for mutual benefit.
Here is an example from Wikipedia on how this game can be played in real life.
