While I don’t like to be (too) cynical, I see this as part of that strange gestalt wherein there appears to be a manifest human inclination in many people to feel more compassion for animals for their fellow man. Shoot a horse, such folks weep and wail; blow up a city, not so much. A robot needing help would be right in that wheelhouse.
However, the creation of a network dependent on human interaction is tres cool and opens up several lines of conjecture. I wonder if I staggered out of, say, Monk’s Cafe one night with a sign pinned on me saying “get me to [home address],” that would work?
I mean, I’m as close to an anthropomorphized object as you can get.SHARE
