Study finds people willing to take orders from robo-boss

UNDATED (WKRC) -- Researchers in Canada found that many people were willing to take orders from a robot boss.

The researchers designed a series of tests that would see how volunteers reacted to the robot's commands.

Volunteers were asked to complete a list of tasks, some fun like singing and others boring like changing the name of file extensions. Some of the volunteers had a human giving the orders while others took commands from the robot boss.

The researchers found that about 46 percent of the volunteers took orders from the robot for a task they didn't want to do, compared to the 86 percent who complied with the human boss.

The study also showed that a few volunteers would argue with the robot.
