Study shows humans can be emotionally manipulated by robots

Back in 2007, a team of researchers carried out a study called 'Begging computer does not want to die.'

The new study involved 89 volunteers who were asked to interact with a Nao robot under the guises of helping it become more intelligent.

They report that 13 volunteers chose to heed the robot's wishes and that all of the others took longer to turn off the robot than did those in the control group.

They suggest their findings indicate that humans have such a strong tendency to anthropomorphize robots that we can fall prey to emotional manipulation.

They note that they also found the type and length of socializing before being asked to turn off the robot did not appear to have any impact regarding the decision made by the volunteers.

It sounds like suboptimal user design compared to videos or audio (where you click on the play symbol and it starts to play).

Is it possible / desirable / planned to display such files in a more user-friendly way that the current manner (which is basically 'download it')?

There is no specific reason but previously I wrote several articles and was reviewed quickly and appear on Google Akram.altameemi (talk) 19:26, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi - when I'm editing content, if I cut or copy text, my cursor always jumps up to the top of the screen, meaning I have to scroll down to find where I was before.

┌─────────────────────────┘ @Schazjmd: Your query about two users viewing each others preference settings is intriguing, it would be nice to have a Special page similar to Twinkle's preferences.

I use that page to C/P settings between my main account and public and phone accounts, but I'm no developer, so not even sure if such a thing is possible :P - FlightTime (open channel) 14:12, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

I have donated to Wikipedia in the past because I thought Wikipedia was a platform for the public and not for private protection of individuals who want to write whatever they want to write about themselves regardless of recent news.
