A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology described their recently published study as the first serious attempt for understanding what it means for both humans and machines, specifically robots, to have social interaction. As specified in a TechCrunch report, politeness does not quantify too much when programmed to get from point A to point B. However, if robots are to play an augmented role in human society, questions appear about how they will get along with others, particularly humans.
In the new research paper, Boris Katz, MIT CSAIL research scientist, said robots will live in this world soon enough, and they indeed need to learn how to communicate using human terms. He added these robots need to understand “when it is time to help” and when it’s time for them to find out what they can do to prevent an occurrence from taking place.

‘Realistic and Predictable’ Interactions Between Robots
The validity of such a claim may be up for a heated discussion. The problem it is attempting to address on a daily stage is undoubtedly roboticists will increasingly regard it as robots start playing an outsized role in people’s lives. To develop what the study authors deemed “realistic and predictable” interactions between robots, the authors carried out tests in a simul…
