Friend in the Machine – Can a Robot Be a True Friend?

Friend in the Machine, the second in our series of four films on developments in AI and robotics and their implications, is available on YouTube.

Can a robot be a true friend? Are we lonely enough to consider relationships with machines? What is companionship and can a machine be a substitute for a human companion? Made with Cambridge University and international experts discussing topical issues within the field of artificial intelligence – Friend in the Machine presents fascinating insights from academia and industry about the world of companion robots and asks what it means to be human in an age of nearly human machines.
