Abstract
Recent developments in humanoid robotics have made possible technologically advanced robots and a vision for their everyday use as assistants in the home and workplace. Nonetheless, little is known about how we should design interactions with humanoid robots. In this paper, we argue that adaptation for user attributes (in particular gender) and task structure (in particular a competitive vs. a cooperative structure) are key design elements. We experimentally demonstrate how these two elements affect the user's social perceptions of ASIMO.
