07 Jan: Robots don’t dream, people do

In the latest Star Wars finale, Rise of Skywalker, there was a touching scene when C3PO remarked: “let me look at my friends one last time”. Echoing through this statement, it literally feels that robots have demonstrated emotional ties typical in a human relationship. Fortunately, it has not. Robots are not able to have a wandering mind according to Henry Wang. He rightfully said that the inability for robots to have a wandering mind makes it ideal for high productivity works and no downtime engagement. (Waytz, 2019)
