Description

The Uncanny Valley is a topic of much fascination not only in robotics, where it originated, but also in other scientific circles as well as in popular culture. Roboticists often allude to it, and so do computer scientists, psychologists, artists, and media theorists. "The Uncanny Valley Revisited" he'd at the 2013 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) was a tribute to Masahiro Mori, the robotics professor who came up with the concept in 1970. The event featured speakers with a wide range of backgrounds. At the end we cornered some of the presenters and asked them to explain the Uncanny Valley in less than a minute.
