What if we could give our robotic friends social skills and charisma?
In this short video, social roboticist Heather Knight explains why we shouldn't just limit machines to automation.
Knight affirms working with robots equipped with personality could make us more social. “We could work together with machines to be capable of doing things that neither of us could do alone.”
Are robots not supposed to think or do they need personalities? Which side are you on?

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
