About the talk

Will robots have the capacity to emotionally engage with us?

In the future, many of us might own robots.  It seems likely that we might develop emotional attachments to them, but will they have the capacity to love us back?

Professor Rob Sparrow from the School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies at Monash University, and Dr Denny Oetomo from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne hypothesise the possibility of future relationships between robots and their owners.
