empathy

 

Scientists at the University of Duisburg Essen say participants in two studies registered similar emotional reactions when they witnessed humans and robots being treated poorly. When asked how they felt after watching the videos, the participants said they had more negative feelings after watching the video of the robot being abused. The researchers will present their findings at the annual International Communication Association conference in London in June.
