Welcome to the 1st edition of the half-day (afternoon) workshop "The Imperfectly Relatable Robot: An interdisciplinary workshop on the role of failure in HRI" co-located with HRI 2023. 

What happens when robots fail? How does this impact human expectations of social robots? What if encountering a robot which is a little less than perfect might actually make it more relatable?

Focusing on failure as a way to improve human-robot interactions represents a novel approach that calls into question human expectations of robots, as well as posing ethical and methodological challenges to researchers.

In this workshop, we invite researchers from across the disciplines to an interactive, interdisciplinary discussion around failure in social robotics. In this space, interdisciplinary conversations are the key to untangling the multiple challenges and bringing themes of power and context into view.

We welcome anyone who is interested to participate in this workshop. Please note that we ask all participants to register for the workshop. Please Register here.
