With the development of information and communication technology, various types of intelligent systems have appeared in our daily lives, such as cleaning robots and entertainment androids. These technologies can be used in various fields such as medical care and education. Artifacts that can behave autonomously are known as agents, and the research field that studies the interactions between humans and agents is known as Human?Agent Interaction (HAI). This new field examines how to design agents and when humans feel comfortable working collaboratively with these agents. These studies also provide fundamental insights into how humans interact and communicate with others and the external world.
