My research paper about human emotional responses to their tournament robots was accepted for publication at the HFES annual conference proceedings in October 2014.
When I found this movie in Dr. Varnado's lab, she told me that this is a sad story. While I was watching, I was deeply touched and amazed by the Steven Spielberg's imagination and how real the robots looked like human, yet still robots. It was a sad story that the robot boy David waited 2000 years for a fairy lady to make his dream of loving her mother come true for just one day. How precious is love! Definitely a "must watch" movie.
I also thought about a question: What makes artificial intelligence really different from human?
