Emotional Relationships with Robotic Companions
A clear trend is observable from the industrial functions of early robots to the more humanlike functions of the companion and carer robots of the present day. This trend is briefly summarized and explained in a social context. Some of the emotion-related research of the past decade or so is discussed, and forecasts are made as to the future directions of such research and the emotional capabilities of robots that are likely to result.
