Abstract
In this paper, we report an experimental study designed to examine how participants interpret and perceive social hints from gaze exhibited by either a robot or a human tutor when carrying out a matching task. The underlying notion is that knowing where an agent is looking provides cues that can direct attention, to an object of interest during a task. In this regard, we asked human participants to play a card matching game in the presence of either a human or a robotic tutor. In one case, the t...
