When do we want our machines to be more human | Jeremy Goslin | TEDxPlymouthUniversity

Jeremy Goslin uses examples from popular culture and his own research to help us understand human interaction with robots. Can our own psychology be used against us? Jeremy explores how the way in which robots behave and communicate could lead to us trusting them a little too much.

Jeremy Goslin is a psychologist whose multidisciplinary approach to research explores both behaviour and cognitive neuroscience related to topics in language, economics, and trust. As the machines that support us become ever more sophisticated, there is both a need and desire to make them more human-like, so that our understanding and interactions with them can be more intuitive. But, do we want our machines to be efficient and implacable, or human-like and flawed?
