We are glad that you are interested in our international workshop on humanoid AI.

In the section Keynote Speakers you can find the abstracts and recorded videos of the workshop presentations. Contributions to the workshop will be published in a Special Issue in Paladyn – Journal of Behavioral Robotics.


In 2017, Dr. Yuefang Zhou and Prof. Martin Fischer initiated the first international workshop on human-robot intimate relations at the University of Potsdam which resulted in the publication of an edited book on developments in human-robot intimate relationships.

In 2019, Prof. Martin Fischer, Prof. Rebecca Lazarides and Dr. Yuefang Zhou organized the second edition of the workshop. As interest in the topic of humanoid AI continues to grow, the scope of the workshop has widened. During the 2019 workshop, international experts from a variety of different disciplines shared their insights on motivational, social and cognitive aspects of learning, with a focus on humanoid intelligent tutoring systems and social learning companions/robots.
