Natural Teaching of Robot-Assisted Rearranging Exercises for Cognitive Training


Social Assistive Robots are a powerful tool to be used in patients’ cognitive training. The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new methodology to enable caregivers to teach cognitive exercises to the robot in an easy and natural way. We build upon our existing framework, in which a robot is employed to provide encouragement and hints while a patient is physically playing a cognitive exercise. In this paper, we focus on empowering the caregiver to easily teach new board exercises to the robot by providing positive examples.
