This chapter summarizes ongoing work in developing and embedding affective technologies in learning interactions with automated systems, such robotic learning companions. The primary motivation for building robots with social-emotional-inspired capabilities is to develop “relational robots” and their associated applications in diverse areas such as health, education, or work productivity where the human user derives performance benefit from establishing a kind of social rapport with the robot. The chapter describes some of the future applications for such robots, provides a brief summary of the current capabilities of state-of-the-art socially interactive robots, presents recent findings in human-computer interaction, and concludes with a few challenges that should be addressed in future research.

Keywords:   robots, automated systems, robotic learning, relational, human-computer interaction, social interaction
