The big question:
´ humans naturally interact with an embodied robot
´ is the physical nature ultimately important, or will a person have identical reactions to an equivalently programmed 3-D graphical agent?
MITÝs role: provide a physically embodied robot that can enter into dynamic interactions with a person.
NTTÝs role: measure the physiological response of people interacting with the robot and interacting with a 3-D graphical agent and compare them.
