Abstract Social communication, which resembles a core difference between machine and human interaction, remains a challenging topic for engineers and neuroscientists. In an aging society like Japan, this is particularly critical for assisted living machinery design as the research results will guide future implementation with social (or interpersonal) value. In this seminar, I will demonstrate how it is possible to use scientific methods to examine the implicit communication via walking step synchronization, brain synchronization, and contagious yawning. I will also discuss about their extension possibilities and collaboration opportunities.
