Meet Pineapple, NKU’s newest artificial intelligence

Pineapple will be used for the next three years for research into social robotics

“Robots are pineapple 1getting more intelligent, more sociable. People are treating robots like humans! People apply humor and social norms to robots,” Dr. [Austin] Lee said. “Even when you think logically there’s no way, no reason, to do that; it’s just a machine without a heart. But because people attach human attributes to robots, I think a robot can be an effective persuader.”
