Dropped by the Science and Theology News web site today and saw the article on Robot helpers: How close to human should they look? which fits right in with my own research.
“Most people doing social robots believe that human faces will turn people off and will disturb them. I think that’s ridiculous,” Hanson said. “The human face is perhaps the most natural paradigm for us to interact with.”
What do you think? Should they look more like human beings or not?
