Family Counseling Robot

from the he-started-it!--no-she-started-it!--ZAP! dept

Apparently robots are the hot topic of the week. Here’s the third robotics story this week. This one is about a new robot that is designed to help with family counseling. I think I’d like to see it in action before I believe it would be helpful. I’d also like to know what trained family counselors think of a machine – which apparently only understands 650 expressions – taking over their jobs.
