Robots are like dogs because, according to some experts, a badly-trained robot could end up misbehaving just like a badly-trained dog. UK Robotics Week included a series of events across the country, aiming to get the public engaged with the developments and debate in and around robotics. Part of this was a panel discussion, including experts like Professor Tony Gillespie, visiting prof at UCL and Professor Darwin Caldwell, director of the Department of Advanced Robotics, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Italy. Professor Caldwell said people could make mistakes with robots by treating them as toys, The Mirror reported.
