But the majority of Americans would rather not accept the help, according to a new survey from the Brookings Institution. The survey found that overall, 61 percent of U.S. adult internet users were either somewhat or very uncomfortable with robots. Some 17 percent said they were interested in a security robot, while 67 percent said they weren’t interested. Many researchers have found that it’s harder to automate tasks that involve human emotion and social skills. That doesn’t meant that people won’t change their attitudes as robots that handle social interactions become more sophisticated, capable and elegant.
