Collection: Uncanny Valley

The uncanny valley is a hypothesis that when robots and other facsimiles of humans look and act almost like actual humans, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers.

The "valley" in question is a dip in a proposed graph of the positivity of human reaction as a function of a robot's lifelikeness.
