    „Producing Human-Robot Intimacy in Japan: Emotion Modeling for Collaborative Ethnography“

    Inspired by recent advances in mechatronics and machine learning, and noting increases in economic precarity, loneliness, and anxiety in society, engineers in Japan have begun asking how robots with artificial emotional intelligence can fulfill humans’ emotional desires. One example of an answer is LOVOT, a pair of two small furry robots on wheels that LOVOT’s parent company Groove X says is designed “to be loved by you.” Combining psychological models of intimacy with technological models for emotion recognition, LOVOT serves as an experimental platform for redefining human-robot intimacy in Japan. At the same time, LOVOT’s ability to record and digitally store “emotional data” raises questions for how anthropologists can engage with other experts who are producing and operationalizing new knowledge on what the emotions are. Drawing from ethnographic research with robotics engineers, designers, and robot users in Japan, this presentation discusses how “emotion modeling” can serve as both a mode of collaborative ethnography and a frame of cultural critique concerning emerging digital engagements with emotion.
