Understanding others, feeling with them, understanding what they think, what moves them: Empathy is the glue that holds our society together, the core competence in social interaction, and the competence goal of social robots. Biologist Jasmina Neudecker wants to find out more about it in the new “Terra Xplore” season “Superpower Empathy.”
Jasmina visited us in the spring when we did the first tests with GPT. At first, she doubted that this was a good idea to develop robots for emotional interaction and bonding. However, Navel and the interaction with him quickly convinced her otherwise.
When the TV crew accompanied us to our tests in the nursing home, it became clear what potential the technology has and what positive effects Navel can have on people in need of care in the nursing home.
