My name is Maria Vircikova

My challenge is to form a group on Human-Robot Interaction in the University Science Park called TECHNICOM. The aim of the project is the study of emotional technology for human-computer interaction, and more specifically, for human-robot interaction. The output will be an implemention of a computer model of adaptive response to the behavior of humans in order to gain experience by personalizing the human-robot interaction.


I work on various projects regarding human-robot interaction, emotions, adaptation & learning, KANSEI information processing and Affective Computing.


At present, I teach Humanoid Technologies, Interactive Systems and Artificial Intelligence at the Technical University of Kosice, Dpt. of Cybernetics and Artificial Intelligence.
