Robotics 2

Kittenman (971447) writes "The BBC magazine pages have an article on human trust of robots. The article cites a poll (done on facebook so certainly well-sourced) over the 'best face' design for a robot that would be trusted. But we still distrust them — because (tfa states) they look unwell (or like corpses) and do not behave as expected.

So would you trust a robot? How about one with the "trusting face"?"

Rotate the eyes a little bit and it's not unlike the face of a Precious Moments figurine.

It's not about the robot. (1)

It's about trusting the programmer(s).
