Will robots take over the world or will they help humanity evolve? Your answer likely depends on the sci-fi you’ve consumed and the values you’ve grown up with. This talk explores why we feel the way we do about robots and why for some people, a future of robotic service workers, caregivers, and even friends can’t come soon enough, while others believe the development of robots/AI might doom the human race. Love them, hate them, or fear them, our views of robots exemplify cultural beliefs that will determine how our relationships with our mechanical counterparts will play out.
