Robots Must Be Designed To Be Compassionate, Says SoftBank CEO

An anonymous reader writes: At the SoftBank World conference in Tokyo, SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son has made a case for robots to be developed so as to form empathic and emotional relationships with people. “I’m sure that most people would rather have the warm-hearted person as a friendSomeday robots will be more intelligent than human beings, and [such robots] must also be pure, nice, and compassionate toward people,” SoftBank’s Aldebaran tech group will make its empathic “Pepper” robot available for companies to rent in Japan from October at a rate of $442 per month.
