Kids Are Smarter Than AI

Great summary of some research on children's perceptions of robots. It's no surprise (to anyone who's read Cliff Nass, at least) that kids react to robots like people with emotions and opinions, and they tend to overattribute robots' abilities.


Jibo founder Cynthia Breazeal found that it's relatively simple to moderate this by teaching young kids that AI is a tool built by people that they can control. Ultimately, this is more important than teaching kids to call robots "it".
