Abstract

Social scientists have suggested the notion that people can relate to robots socially is leading to the development of a “robotics culture”, in which we explore and redefine our notions of self and others in relation to emerging interactive technologies. Our expectations from human social relationships, in turn, impact both how these technologies are designed and how people use and make sense of them. In this talk, I will discuss how cultural and social
norms and practices inform robotics design and use, and how robotic technologies in turn can affect social and cultural meanings and practices.
