This thesis establishes the new field of Robot Social Engineering. We define Robot Social Engineering as the use of social abilities and techniques by robots to manipulate others in order to achieve a goal. We build the field of Robot Social Engineering on the foundations of Human-Robot Interaction research on social robots as well as information security research on social engineering.
