Other people find robots that look a lot like humans scary. Kate Darling, Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab explains the different types of human-robot interactions. We talked about how the design of the robot affects how it is perceived and the role of the person’s culture. At the end we talked about questions that lawmakers will need to address in this space.
