The Uncanny Valley by Masahiro Mori

I find visits to the “Uncanny Valley” bothersome. I quickly recover, but I suspect the visits to the uncanny valley are going to become more frequent and increasingly bothersome.

The Uncanny Valley by Masahiro Mori in 01970.

Spectrum.IEEE.org Editor’s note:
More than 40 years ago, Masahiro Mori, then a robotics professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, wrote an essay on how he envisioned people’s reactions to robots that looked and acted almost human.
