Can We Be Friends with Robots? – When Robots Rule The World – Medium
Can humans and robots truly be friends? This is an inescapably philosophical question. At the same time, empirical research on how consumers behave when they treat “products as pals” suggests it’s a pressing matter. It turns out that when humans interact with anthropomorphic robots or even just see images of them, they can feel like some of their social needs are being satisfied. Evidence suggests that people who feel socially excluded can rebound from their alienation, at least somewhat, by turning to humanlike devices, much like upset children cope by hugging teddy bears and other attachment objects.

The cutesy products tech companies are putting on our phones and in our homes might be having an unfriendly — if not dehumanizing — impact: discouraging us from pro-social human contact.
