I recently came across this art installation by artist and engineer, Dan Chen. He calls it “The Last Moment Robot” and created it to raise controversial questions of ethics and humanity. He says,
The process of dying is probably the most vulnerable moment of a human life, where one seeks the assurance of human connection. In this installation, human presence is replaced with a robot, questioning the quality of intimacy without humanity,
It’s a pretty eerie idea that this might ever replace human interaction. After watching it, I am confident in my own job security. I don’t think robots will replace chaplains in the room anytime soon!
