Our mission: facilitating the use of all interaction devices, from the simplest screen to the most complex robot


At the instigation of Xavier Basset et Amélie Cordier, the Hoomano Lab combines the R&D and engineering strengths of the company.

Its goal is to become the go-to provider for the very highest quality of machine-user interaction.

Its role is to integrate obtained algorithms into social robots engines in order to obtain even more instinctive human-machine interactions. 25,000 difference-making “user-robot” interactions are made possible every month by Hoomano’s expertise on an international scale, in France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Dubai, Japan, or Australia.

Amelie Cordier, researcher and conference master in the IT and Artificial intelligence spheres at the LIRIS laboratory and Lyon 1 University, supervises the scientific work Hoomano has conducted full time since January, 2017. Today she is assisted in this mission by a team of 3 researchers in AI.

Lending its support to HOOMANO’s R&D activities is Behaviors.ai, a “LabCom” that sets out to undertake cutting edge research in Artificial intelligence, more precisely developmental learning.


The primary missions of Hoomano’s innovation area include:

Technological challenge exploring new machines and robots

Creation of products directly based on research results

Fundamental research on human-machine interactions, as part of the collaboration with the common laboratory behaviors.ai
