Computer scientist Eakta Jain draws parallels between fully autonomous robots and horses that have earned the trust of their riders. Jain's research focuses on human-robot interactions, particularly in the context of different levels of autonomy. Jain explores how early stages of interaction and trust can be established between humans and robots. She suggests incorporating nonvocal cues, such as robotic "ears" that swivel towards sounds, to communicate respect and foster trust between humans and robots.
