Empathy is a core human skill. From early stages of our lives, being able to understand and behave with empathy is fundamental to our social experience. Research in the field of social robotics suggests that given a set of behaviors from a social robot, a child can perceive this agent as empathic. In this project, we explore a novel approach to modeling empathy in children using a social robot. Two social robots were programmed to have conversations containing interactions depicting empathic and non-empathic behaviors. Children were provided with opportunities to act on these interactions as well as to comment on the robot's behavior afterward.
