The Interaction Lab focuses on developing computational principles and techniques to enable social, human-robot interaction. Professor Maja Matarić and her
students conduct research in an interdisciplinary arena that applies computer science and engineering to assist in mitigating critical societal problems
that require sustained, personalized support to supplement the efforts of educators, parents, and clinicians. More recent work investigates the impact of
long-term and personalized Socially Assistive Robotics (SAR) to increase quality of life, health, communication, autonomy, and educational goals. These robot
systems autonomously interact with and learn from a large variety of human subjects in real-world environments.
