Can robots make us love them, and is that love real? As Lisa and Carina Wytiaz dive into the first two chapters of Alone Together by Sherry Turkle, they explore their relationships to the tools and toys around us that seem to have a life of their own--from Furbies and Tamagotchis, to Siri and Alexa. Carina shares how her experience in the tech industry affects the way she views this kind of interaction. As electronics get more human-like, what does the way we treat them say about us? And how can we set boundaries and nurture meaningful relationships?
