  • There’s a growing fear that artificial intelligence combined with robotics will displace the value of humans in many contexts.
  • One advantage of making a robotic cat versus a dog when it comes to biological comparisons is that MarsCat’s operating time is about three to four hours.
  • At some point, the category may mature where these robots can offer more emotional support to those who would like a real dog or cat but can’t have one for reasons ranging from lack of mobility to allergies.
