Artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly common across aspects of our lives. But what role should it play in how we find love?
Having robots and other AI systems tell people what the AIs are doing makes them more trustworthy. A study finds that how a robot explains itself matters.

Humans and machines perceive the world differently and respond in different ways to what they perceive. This lays the groundwork for conflict – and crashes.
Highly trained dancers provide insights for researchers helping design improved rehab programs for people with mobility impairments. The next step could include rehab robots as dance partners.
