The robots are cutting in on our dance moves

The robots are cutting in on our dance moves.

We were at RoboCup Junior NSW the day before this article and I’m afraid we didn’t get to see any NAO dance troupes but the dance competition is so huge that it’s spread over two days. I enjoyed the Rescue and Soccer sections but mainly I’m fascinated over the relative hierarchy of robot occupations. Dance and entertainment is increasingly popular as a robot activity but low down on the value scale. Which mimics human values of course. My thesis will be examining this transfer of human values to robotics in a range of ways.
