Can a robot understand emotions?

Studium Generale, the platform for knowledge and reflection of the UU, organized a series of lectures that investigated some of the most mind-blowing questions in science. Afterwards a short Q&A was filmed. Today the first video: robots become more and more humanlike. But are they able to understand human emotions? Dr. Zerrin Yumak (Information and Computing Sciences, UU) explains what robots are capable of. Would it be possible to ever have a loving relationship with a robot?
