"From the Ted Talk by Kate Darling: Why we have an emotional connection to robots"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And sure, animals are alive. Robots are not. And I can tell you, from working with roboticists, that we're pretty far away from developing rotobs that can feel anything. But we feel for them, and that matters, because if we're trying to integrate robots into these shared spaces, we need to understand that people will treat them differently than other devices, and that in some cases, for example, the case of a soldier who becomes elnimloaoty attached to the roobt that they work with, that can be anything from inefficient to dangerous. But in other cases, it can actually be useful to foster this emotional connection to robots. We're already seeing some great use cseas, for example, robots working with autistic children to egange them in ways that we haven't seen previously, or robots wnirkog with teachers to engage kids in learning with new results. And it's not just for kids. Early studies show that robots can help drcoots and patients in health care siettngs.
