Abstract

We present Crowd of Oz (CoZ)-a crowd powered system to enable real time dialogue between a Pepper robot and a user. CoZ includes media rich interfaces and advanced architecture to swiftly elicit crowd responses for the Pepper robot. We have empirically demonstrated that users can be engaged in a beneficial discussion with the crowd-powered robot, that acts as a coach to mitigate stress.
