*Dear Colleagues,We invite proposals from research organizations interested
in using Quori, an affordable, socially interactive robot platform designed
for enabling non-contact human-robot interaction (HRI) computing research
in lab and “in the wild” experimental settings. Eligible applicants, which
must be lead by university faculty, include university faculty, staff
scientists, researchers, engineers, and PhD students within academic
institutions in the United States. More information can be found at
<> and the associated FAQ page <> .Quori’s hardware and
integrated software were developed collaboratively between the University
of Pennsylvania, the University of Southern California, and Semio, with the
support of a National Science Foundation (NSF) Computing Research
Infrastructure (CRI) Collaborative Grant. Eight (8) Quori robot platforms
will be awarded and shipped to US research organizations that will make
rigorous and creative use of the robots for existing or planned computing
and robotics projects.By providing Quori to research organizations, the
team and the NSF aim to enable computing researchers to develop and test
algorithms, as well as conduct statistically significant user studies by
deploying systems in the real world and collecting user data to inform
further computing research in HRI. Important Dates:All deadlines end at
11:59pm Anywhere in the USA (UTC-10)* Letter of Intent Due: Friday, October
26, 2018* Final Proposal Due: Friday, December 7, 2018* Award Decision:
January 2018* Award Disbursement: Spring 2019Best regards,The Quori Project
