+title: A Novel Greeting System Selection System for a Culture-Adaptive Humanoid Robot

+lang: Japanese
+# Abstract
+* Robots, especially humanoids, are expected to perform human-like actions and adapt to our ways of communication in order to facilitate their acceptance in human society.
+* Among humans, rules of communication change depending on background culture.
+* Greeting are a part of communication in which cultural differences are strong.
+# Abstract
+* In this paper, we present the modelling of social factors that influence greeting choice,
+* and the resulting novel culture-dependent greeting gesture and words selection system.
+* An experiment with German participants was run using the humanoid robot ARMAR-IIIb.
+# Introduction
+* Acceptance of humanoid robots in human societies is a critical issue.
+* One of the main factors is the relations ship between the background culture of human partners and acceptance.
+    * ecologies, social structures, philosophies, educational systems.
+# Introduction
+* In the work Trovat et al. culture-dependent acceptance and discomfort relating to greeting gestures were found in a comparative study with Egyptian and Japanese participants.
+* As the importance of culture-specific customization of greeting was confirmed.
+* Acceptance of robots can be improved if they are able to adapt to different kinds of greeting rules.
+# Introduction
+* Adaptive behaviour in robotics can be achieved through various methods:
+    * reinforcement learning
+    * neural networks
+    * generic algorithms
+    * function regression
