The Doctors have discussed controversial takes on robots becoming more lifelike for various reasons and there's a new type that is raising eyebrows: griefbots. These robots are created to resemble deceased loved ones, taking on their language and mannerisms to feel very much like the deceased. The Doctors watch videos of Bina 48, a griefbot, who is the most advanced social robot built off of a real living woman.
The Doctors all agree, death is a part of life and these robots disrupt a natural process. Looking at Bina 48, OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry and gastroenterologist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez both think it's creepy and scary! Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon acknowledges this can bring some positive memories and joy to someone but it is ultimately not a good thing.
"You have to move on so you can actually live life instead of just being stuck in the past," says Dr. Rodriguez. Dr. Nita lists the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance--and says these griefbots leave you in the denial phase.
Losing a loved one is not easy but death is part of the circle of life and the grieving process is one we all have to go through.
