Emotional Robots Researchers started this petition to National Science Foundation

Robots are starting to develop emotional abilities - meaning they can detect what emotions people are feeling and respond appropriately. This helps make them more useful in customer service roles. We ask that the National Science Foundation (the US government's funding body for scientific research) increase funding for emotional robot research. This will improve robots' abilities to understand and express emotion and make them more useful to humans.
