Over the years, the fields of cognitive science and robotics have gone through several paradigm shifts and, as a result, moved closer together.

In this presentation, I will highlight the "dual role" of robots in today's cognitive science research, both as experimental tools and as embodied models, for investigating situated cognition and social interactions.  Throughout the talk I will then demonstrate the two uses with several examples from our own human-robot interaction work, including novel experimental methods (e.g., for studying joint attention processes) and computational models of social interactions (e.g., dialogue-based search and rescue scenarios).
