'That music is scary!' Watch AI ROBOTS react to horror movies

  • Two robots were shown the trailer for 'Morgan' to gauge their reactions 
  • Edi vocalized its 'thoughts' with phrases like 'That is definitely scary'
  • FACE, although silent, used its flexible 'skin' to make facial expressions
  • Both robots are designed to advance human/machine interactions

Robots have been illustrated as humans’ mechanical servants, but experts are determined to turn these cyborgs into emotional synthetic beings.

Now, researchers brought the two of the world's most advanced robots together to test their reactions by showing them the trailer for the horror flick ‘Morgan’.

Edi vocalizes its fear with phrases such as ‘Oh no, I can’t watch’ and although FACE is silent, it offers its ‘thoughts' by eerily moving its eyes, mouth and head.

‘Morgan’, directed by Luke Scott, is a 20th Century Fox film that is set to be released on September 2.

This horror flick tells the story of a corporate risk-management consultant (Kate Mara) who is sent to investigate a bioengineered child (Anya Taylor-Joy), and determine whether or not the artificial being should be terminated.

Interestingly, this film seems to coincide with the two robots designed by magicLab and the University of Pisa, as the inventors behind these technologies are also focused on developing synthetic beings.

‘If robots would have the ability to experience emotion, that would start a completely new chapter in who we are and how we interact with these kind of machines,’ Marco Tempest with magicLab.ny.said in a video.

‘That is an equally frightening and exciting outlook.’

Edi, which is short for Electronic Deceptive Intelligence, is the brain child of magicLab.nyc.

This robot is fitted with a range sensors, has long robotic arms and a screen that displays a cartoon face.

‘He has a lot of sensors and cameras in his wrists which gauge how close I am to Edi,’ shared Daniele Mazzei, a researcher at the University of Pisa.

‘There is a camera in the face with sonar range that creates a point cloud of distance between moving objects around him.’

In the reaction clip, Edi can be seen changing facial expressions on its front screen and even covers its ‘eyes’ during an intense scene of the trailer.

‘That music is scary’, it says in the beginning of the trailer.

‘That’s scary, that is definitely scary.’

‘If I had nails, I would have bitten them,’ it says after the showing had ended.

FACE may be the silent type, but this cyborg is designed with a more human-like appearance.

The artificial skull is covered by a skin made of Frubber, a silicone-based material that is flexible enough to allow subtle human-like movements.

Created by the University of Pissa, this life-like android is designed to present emotional information through facial expressions.

‘Our research is directed to make FACE social and attractive providing it of aesthetic refinements and human-like behaviors to be able to emotionally engage people in social interactions,’ explains the researchers.

During the showing of the trailer, FACE made facial expressions during specific scenes.

When Morgan finds a way out of her prison, FACE turns its head towards the camera, eyes wide open and jaw dropped.

However, when the bioengineered child escapes from the facility, FACE eerily smiles and its eyes squint with satisfaction.

'On the other side there is a problem known as uncanny valley,' said Mazzei.

'As far as I know, as a robot becomes more expressive, more human like it elicits fear in human beings.'

'And this is natural because this is part of our cognitive process.'
