When we perform a task with another person, like dancing or playing a piano duet, we are able to coordinate the timing of our actions with exquisite precision. It’s likely that we do this by generating predictions of our co-actors actions using our own actions as a model. But how do these mechanisms fair when we co-act with artificial agents like robots and virtual avatars? And are our abilities to co-act with artificial agents impacted by whether we view them as more or less human? During this PhD you will examine the mechanisms that support joint action specifically in the context of artificial agents using a range of techniques including behavioural experiments and Electroencephalography.
