Selma Sabanovic (Indiana University - Bloomington) leads a discussion that focuses on the cultural differences in the use of robots worldwide.  The film Mechanical Love explores the relationship people in different countries (Japan, Germany, Italy, etc.) have with robots and contrasts "humanoid" (a robot in the shape of a human being), "android" (a robot that looks and moves like a human) and "geminoid" (a copy of an actual human being) robots.
