Robot Nexi Helps Researchers Understand Human's Trust

DolceTracker| We feel a bit better reading that the director of the MIT Media Lab’s Personal Robots Group is a woman. Our worst fear in life is only male minds programming the robots of the future. Cynthia Breazeal, MIT’s personal robots guru is leading research to determine how humans develop trust.

The experiments are carried out using Nexi, who has been programmed to make gestures while speaking with selected participants — gestures that the team hypothesizes could determine whether or not she’s deemed trustworthy.  This is a fascinating research project and sensible too. via Science Daily
