About this Episode

Today we're joined by Dr. Kate Darling, Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab. Kate's focus is on robot ethics and interaction, namely the social implication of how people treat robots and the purposeful design of robots in our daily lives. This episode is a fascinating look into the intersection of psychology and how we are using technology. We cover topics like how to measure empathy, the impact of robot treatment on kids behavior, the correlation between animals and robots, and why ‘successful' robots aren't always humanoid - all within the context of at least nine different types of robots for your listening pleasure. Kate combines a wealth of knowledge with an analytical mind that doesn't stop questioning the why and how of human-robot interaction - the result is a enlightening episode for everyone.
