Are We Living in a Robot Cargo Cult?
2009 (English)In: HRI '09 Proceedings of the 4th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human robot interaction, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
We use the Cargo Cult metaphor to discuss visions, methods and communication of robot research. Essentially cargo cult involves performing of imitative rituals that are conducted without understanding the underlying cause of a phenomenon. We discuss how this is an ongoing challenge within the field of HRI, and what researchers could do to avoid contributing to a robotic cargo cult.
