The journal LOVOTICS is peer-reviewed journal in Loving robots. It publishes high-quality and significant research in all fields of robotics. Contributions conduct state-of-the-art research on technologies and practical applications that support and foster the improvement of robots. The journal explores novel design concepts, analysis and synthesis, and many application fields. The journal also covers emerging fields that include: mathematical and computational methodologies in robotics, healthcare robotics, social robotics, manufacturing robotics, human-robot interaction, bio-inspired robotics, control algorithms, and control systems.
Robots won't merely attenuate the need for human intimacy and thus the use of love for instrumental purposes. They also seem to have attractions as companions in their own right. So far the most sophisticated social robots are those developed to ease the loneliness of the elderly (unsurprisingly, ageing, anti-immigrant Japan is at the forefront). Many seem to find their companion robots more attractive than the people around them: they are more straightforward to relate to and less demanding than ordinary ornery humans. But it seems to me that even in the most intimate sphere, and for mentally and physically healthy individuals in the prime of life, robots may eventually become more attractive than humans as companions.
