The goal of the JAMES project -- Joint Action for Multimodal Embodied Social Systems -- is to develop an artificial embodied agent that supports socially appropriate, multi-party, multimodal interaction. In JAMES, we focus on the qualitative aspects of task achievement in social situations, rather than simply the physical aspects of traditional robotics tasks. In particular, we will endow a robot with the ability to recognize, understand, and generate appropriate multimodal social signals in real-world, dynamic, taskoriented contexts.

The goal of this evaluation was to test the robot's capabilities to interact with multiple humans in several conditions. The robot should not only fulfill its task, but also interact with the humans in a socially appropriate way.

The following persons programmed the robot:
