Why Humanlike Robots Give You That Creepy Feeling

Monday, 8 July 2019

Have you ever gotten an eerie, unsettled feeling when you’re watching a movie with computer-generated imagery of a face or when you see a video of a humanlike robot?You might be experiencing Uncanny Valley, a physical reaction to the sensation of not quite humanness.As technology has progressed, the idea of Uncanny Valley has progressed from scientific theory to mainstream pop culture knowledge., researchers have not known much about what causes the phenomenon — until now.

 

 

 

Tracing the uncanny 
The concept of the Uncanny Valley is the idea that as robots and other simulacra approach human-like features they appear more odd and creepy than those that are more obviously unhuman.It was first proposed by Japanese roboticist Masahiro Mori in 1970.Mori himself did not elaborate on his hypothesis, but others have taken up the torch since.Most recently, a team of researchers from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom and the RWTH Aachen University in Germany have done so.
