April 27 — The Uncanny Valley: That’s the term researchers use to describe the strange sensation humans feel when they look at a computer-generated face or a humanoid robot and can tell that there’s something off about the machine. But two Swedish scientists think they have a robotics breakthrough they hope will make that sensation a thing of the past. They’ve created technology that allows robots to take on more human traits and expressions. Their creation is called Furhat.
