Considerations Concerning a Methodology for Musical Robotics and Human-Robot Interaction
Robot technology is increasingly employed in artistic (musical) applications and as modeling tool for the investigation of general cognitive abilities and music related behavior in particular. Apart from the specifications of required system behavior and technological aspects of system design/implementation, problems occur concerning the evaluation of the systems. In recent approaches, techniques such as collecting informal reports, perceptual tests, video-based observational studies, or rating scales have been employed. Questions arise, however, as to the reliability and validity of these measures, and the lack of standardization diminishes the comparability of different studies. To attack these problems, we regard the paradigm of systematic observation as one suitable approach to study musical human-robot behavior. In a pilot study, observers were asked to assign labels to sequences of robot movements exhibiting features derived from expressive movements of musicians. Taking into account the implications of these remarks for the design of investigations, the generality of results may still be limited, e.g. by the choice of participants. As long as results of this kind cannot be integrated into a coherent theoretical framework, these considerations may run counter to recent attempts to use musical behavior as a testing field for principles underlying more general cognitive abilities/processes. ...

Methodological Considerations for Studies in Sport and Exercise Science with Women as Participants : A Working Guide for Standards of Practice for Research on Women Elliott-Sale, Kirsty J.; Minahan, Clare L.; Janse de Jonge, Xanne A. K.; Ackerman, Kathryn E.; Sipilä, Sarianna; Constantini, Naama W.; Lebrun, Constance M.; Hackney, Anthony C. (Springer, 2021)Until recently, there has been less demand for and interest in female-specific sport and exercise science data. As a result, the vast majority of high-quality sport and exercise science data have been derived from studies ...

Psychometric properties of observational tools for identifying motor difficulties : a systematic review Asunta, P.; Viholainen, H.; Ahonen, T.; Rintala, P. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2019)Background Early identification of children with motor difficulties, such as developmental coordination disorder (DCD), is essential. At present only a fraction of children with DCD are identified. The purpose of the study ...

Observed Fitness May Affect Niche Overlap in Competing Species via Selective Social Information Use Loukola, Olli; Seppänen, Janne-Tuomas; Krams, Indrikis; Torvinen, Satu; Forsman, Jukka (The University of Chicago Press, 2013)Social information transmission is important because it enables horizontal spread of behaviors, not only between conspecifics but also between individuals of different species. Because interspecific social information use ...
