Call for Participants in Sydney

We are looking for participants in the Western Sydney area to partake in a study with the NAO robot and ROILA. Details are in the ad below.

Seeking participants willing to spend time learning a novel artificial language designed to interact with robots. This is part of an honours project studying languages in human-robot interaction. For more information about the language being used, ROILA, see

The study will involve repeating various phrases to a robot in ROILA and English. You won’t have to learn ROILA fluently; you will be able to listen to pre-recorded phrases and repeat it. These will also be made available to you before the date of the study if you wish to review it beforehand.

Participation in this research is completely voluntary and you have the right to withdraw at any time, without pressure or penalty. This research is completely anonymous. Participants will be rewarded with a $ 20 iTunes gift card. The study will involve 3 visits to one of the participating campus (Bankstown or Kingswood.)

As the research involves languages, you need to have been born in Australia and you must be 18 years or above.

If you are interested in participating, please email Joshua at

This research is being carried out by Joshua Henderson, Computer Science Honours Student.
