  "description": "<p>Interaction among humans does not always proceed without errors; situations might happen in which a wrong word or attitude can cause the partner to feel uneasy. However, humans are often very sensitive to these interaction failures and may be able to fix them.</p>\n\n<p>Our research aims to endow robots with the same skill. Thus the first step, presented in this short paper, investigates to what extent a humanoid robot can impact someone&rsquo;s Comfortability in a realistic setting. To capture natural reactions, a set of real interviews performed by the humanoid robot iCub (acting as the interviewer) were organized. The interviews were designed in collaboration with a journalist from the press office of our institution and are meant to appear on the official institutional online magazine. The dialogue along with fluent human-like robotic actions were chosen not only to gather information about the participants&rsquo; personal interests and professional career, necessary for the magazine column, but also to influence their Comfortability.</p>\n\n<p>Once the experiment is completed, the participants&rsquo; self-report and spontaneous reactions (physical and physiological cues) will be explored to tackle the way people&rsquo;s Comfortability may be manifested through non-verbal cues, and the way it may be impacted by the humanoid robot.</p>",
