Abstract

© 2017 Authors. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has expressed on several occasions the importance of the preservation of cultural identity through the protection of tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Although there are multiple robot applications for protection of tangible heritage, robot applications for immaterial protection are still in their initial stages. Our work explores the use of social robots as a tool for the development of a platform conformed by a text layer, multimedia layer, and social robot layer (multimodal system), for the conservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage. A first revision to the implementation of a multimodal architecture is proposed, on aim to preserve the myths, legends, and stories that compose the intangible heritage. The fundamental objective of this work is to create enhanced-knowledge transmission environments that allow increasing the interest of the new generations towards their cultural identity through the effective use of emerging technologies.
