Questions that have arisen:
Collaboration and Therapy
So they can operate like we do!
We may never know
"If I only had a brain..."
filters, i dont know much about 1 on 1 interaction!
dont care too much, but
HRI, or human-robot interaction has really grown in the past decade.
You can measure this growth through the types of toys that children are playing with now a days.
Meet the Zhu Zhu Pets
"The popular Zhu Zhu robot pet hamsters come out of the box in 'nurturing mode.' The official biography of the Zhu Zhu named Chuck says, 'He lives to feel the love' (Turkle 24)."
Do Robots Understand Feelings?
According to Turkle, "Computers 'understand' as little as ever about human experience-for example, what it means to envy a sibling or miss a deceased parent. They do, however, perform understanding better than ever, and we are content to play our part (26)."
What is Turkle saying?
I believe that Turkle is stating that robots can't truly understand our feelings they can only act as if they understand them.
However, Olivia and George might just prove Turkle wrong.
Okay, so Olivia and George are only portrayed as having feelings of revolting instead of actually having them. This question of revolting is only one of many that arise when discussing 21st century robots.
