Editorial

On behalf of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Lovotics, it is our great pleasure to introduce the journal. Launching this new journal would not have been possible without the significant support from the International Editorial Board members and precious contributions of authors and reviewers.

Lovotics, as a discipline, aims to elevate the Social Robotics and Human Robot Interaction towards affection and friendship between the robot and the human partner. The aim of the journal is to serve as a platform for researchers across the world to share their latest research, development and innovation in the field of Lovotics, for the benefit of the robotics community and with the vision to contribute for the betterment of the society.

This first issue of the journal features eight contributions from around the world, highlighting different aspects and results for Lovotics. The first paper by Lanza, exploits the idea that why not the computers can be creative, and explores the possibilities of computer ‘thinking’ of ‘electric poems’. The second paper by Cooney highlights how the social well-being aspect, one of the main goals of Lovotics, can be studies. It explores the roles of perceived enjoyment, affection and proactive engagement of the robot. Lovotics as a discipline intends to build a long lasting and close relationship between the human and the robot. The third paper by Pandey discusses the range of key questions and the basic ingredients for building such robots and suggests taking into account the broader notion of the Uncanny Valley from Lovotics perspective.

The feeling of being loved in a remote communication is studied in the fourth paper by Kuwamura. Their system Active Co-Presence allows users to virtually hug a person in the remote site through the medium. The fifth paper by Levy explores the possibilities of more intimate relation between a robot and a human. From this perspective, he talks about the Roxxxy robot and investigates the promises made and the ‘services’ it delivers. The sixth paper by Pagnon explores the aspect of autonomy and discusses some common guidelines and factors to develop autonomous vehicles. The seventh paper by Riccillo distinguishes tele presence from remote controlled robot, where the former has the Lovotics ingredient of ‘feel’. It discusses such Avatars in an interactive office setting. Finally, the paper by Jamisola discusses how to transfer to machines the notion of love and affection, which are some of the core ingredients of a Lovotics robot.

While these papers provide an interesting walkthrough of the field of Lovotics, the associated challenges and the potential solutions, they also give the clear idea that the field is in its infancy but at the same time very promising for the well-being of the society. We hope that the collection of articles in this issue of the Journal of Lovotics will elevate the understanding of the readers about the field and pave the path for the more serious investigations in terms of research, development and innovation.
