Coauthored with CcaM'ers Jochen Peter, Rinaldo Kuhne, Chiara de Jong, and Alex Barco, Caroline and her CcaM colleagues conducted an exploratory study with 87 children (aged 7 to 11 years) to explore whether children distinguish between technological and interpersonal trust when it comes to relationships with social robots.
