Abstract

For robots to operate in social environments, they must be able to recognize human intentions. In the context of social robotics, intent recognition must rely on imperfect sensors, such as depth cameras, and must operate in real time. This chapter introduces several approaches for recognizing intentions by physical robots. We show how such systems can use sensors, such as the Microsoft Kinect, as well as temporal and contextual information obtained from resources such as Wikipedia.
