The goals of "understanding humanity" and "humanizing robots" tightly relate to each other. Infanoid Project has related robotics to human sciences in order to understand the underlying mechanism of social communication specific to humans and some species of primates. Early communication between a child and caregiver is mainly embodied through touch and eye contact. By investigating the developmental mechanism of the preverbal interaction, especially through our longitudinal observation of children with communication disorders, we investigated the core human communication capabilities and design principles for future info-communication systems with which we can make symbiotic relationships.
