Bye Bye Bot

Posted on: August 11th, 2015 by Amy

hitchbotPerhaps you’ve heard of Hitchbot the Robot who met his untimely demise in Philadelphia earlier this month?

If not, read this story and chew on these questions over dinner tonight:

Would you have picked up this hitchhiking robot if you passed him on the road? Why or why not?

Do you think we can/should trust robots? Explain.

Do you think robots should trust humans?

While some people are mourning Hitchbot, his creators see his journey as a success. What do you think about his experiences?

Imagine you could invent a robot. What would it do?

If Hitchbot’s creators tried his journey again, do you think the same kind of thing would happen to him? Why or why not?
