This booklet is for either robotic developers and scientists who examine human behaviour and human societies. Scientists don't in basic terms gather empirical info yet in addition they formulate theories to provide an explanation for the information. Theories of human behaviour and human societies are often expressed in phrases yet, this present day, with the appearance of the pc they could even be expressed by way of developing computer-based artefacts. If the artefacts do what humans do, the theory/blueprint that has been used to build the artefacts explains human behaviour and human societies. on the grounds that people are essentially our bodies, the artefacts needs to be robots, and human robots needs to gradually reproduce all we all know approximately humans and their societies. And, even though they're merely medical instruments, they could have one extremely important sensible program: assisting people to higher comprehend the numerous tough difficulties they face this present day and may face sooner or later - and, possibly, to discover strategies for those difficulties.
