Next week, the Faculty of Economics and Business will host a fascinating experiment with a semi-humanoid robot (TIAGo) who will engage with humans in playing a board game. The experiment will last approximately 5 minutes and, at the end of it, the participant will fill out an anonymous questionnaire.

The main objective of the experiment, led by UB Business School’s researcher Santiago Forgas Coll, is to evaluate various aspects of the interaction between the user and the robot acting as a tutor in a board game scenario.

COVID-19 prevention measures will scrupulously followed (use of mask, social distancing, use of hand sanitizer and disposable gloves).

TIAGo will be happy to meet you on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th from 10:00 to 19:00 and on Wednesday 21st from 11:30 to 17:00 in Building 690, next to classroom 1019.

Your participation is very important for the success of the experiment!
