Pop Culture Lens on Robots, Anthropomorphism, and Ethics

In this video, part of the new YouTube Channel for The Pop Culture Lens, you will hear an excerpt from a lecture I gave on robots.

I make the argument for why such anthropomorphism, and zoomorphism, occurs, which leads to an ethical consideration for how we do, and will, engage with robots.
