As expectations are high for robots to provide daily support to humans, and for humans and robots to work together constantly in the future, it is important to investigate how relationships between them can be formed in society. This paper looks at Robot-Mediated Communications in human society. We predict thai human communication patterns will change when the robots described above come to join humans. We therefore propose a robot system that considers alt of this. The characteristics of our robot system include a consistent interface connected to a digital world and a physical world, guidance according to the user's interest, and autonomous behaviors using artificial life technology. A robot with these functions can be a matchmaker between humans who have similar interests and can therefore promote creative collaboration. We describe this Robot-Mediated Communications in this paper.
