A new study reveals that children are susceptible to peer pressure by robots, while adults remain immune.

Quote:To conduct the study, researchers created three groups of adult volunteers, all assigned the same task: to estimate the length of a target line based on three other lines. In the control group, the volunteers were asked to complete the task alone. Another group went at the task with a group of human “confederates,” undercover researchers tasked to sway the humans’ decisions, and the last group worked with robot “confederates:” three humanoid robots “individualized with outfits.”

Researchers discovered that for adults, volunteers’ accuracy dropped when in a room with human confederates, while the robot confederates didn’t seem to make a difference. When they repeated the experiment with children between seven to nine years old, however, the children were heavily influenced by the robots. In fact, 74 percent of the time children gave the wrong answer, they gave the same answer as the robot, word for word. When the robots gave the right answers, the kids did too.

We're programmed to be screwed when it comes to this? Why?

Seriously,
Kids don't get out enough these days.
When I was a kid, my parents took me all over the country camping. We visited and learned everything from the east coast to the west coast and every province in Canada.
While attending a powwow in South Carolina, I met with the Chief of the Cherokee Nation when I was about fourteen.
(a great honor) He told me, "You're not a conformist, never change away from that path".
I've always held that moment close.
It's important for children to have these kinds of mentors in their life experiences and not be plugged into the system as obedient drones.

Unfortunately the "when I was a kid" argument won't fix this and try to infuse old time "wisdom" into modern times won't work. I think the main difference with "us" and "them" is that we grew up offline. They didn't.

Well, the study in the OP is real as far as I know, the rest is speculation based on the very high number of robot obedient kids

Maybe before the internet kids were watching their parents droning out to the television.
It's kinda the same thing only a little bit less interactive.
Some parents used the television as a babysitter.
It's all very insidious and Orwellian.
