Presentation Title:

  • How Digital Anthropomorphism Enhances Creativity in Human-to-Robot Dance Interactivity

Presentation Subtheme:

  • Symbiotic Individuations




  • Through our research-creation experiments, we imagine movement sequences that challenge the concept of anthropomorphism in digital twin robots. While considering the term of interactivity to better define their interaction, we observe how different movement material is stimulating creativity through a hybridization process between human and machine. From this perspective, we determine how users experience qualia while learning through imitation a dance sequence consecutively demonstrated by a humanoid robot, an industrial arm and a human. Their feedback and our own practical experimentation allow us to better understand the impact of digital anthropomorphism in the making of a sustainable human-to-robot interaction.
