Are robots trustworthy?

Robots are unreliable in case of fire or other emergency situations but people trust them blindly, according to a new study. People may trust a robot too much for their own safety in case of emergency situations, but the machine has proven itself unreliable. “People seem to believe that these robotic systems know more about the world than they really do, and that they would never make mistakes or have any kind of fault,” said Alan Wagner, a research engineer in the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). For several test subjects, the robot stopped moving.
