Interview with Karl MacDorman, Associate Professor, School of Informatics, IUPUI. "I think android is something very strange, because actually it is not really something that we can say exists, but it is more like a goal. So, the goal is to build a robot that is indistinguishable from a human being.And, I think that you can interpret that on many levels, not just looking the same as a human, not just producing humanlike emotions, but having the same interaction as well. And, theres no robot yet that exists that meets that criteria, so thats why I say its something really designed in terms of the goal. So, we can talk about presentday androids as being machines that are built with that goal in mind."
