Social robots and religion: The case of judaism

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this short position paper we outline issues that may arise in taking into consideration for Social Robots and Religion. We take as a case study the example of Judaism. We look at areas dictated by Jewish Law and Jewish custom and leave as out of scope for this paper questions of Jewish ethics. We provide examples of areas which could benefit from adaptation to Jewish religious stereotypes. Awareness of these issues can benefit future robot-human interaction designers.
