Part of Channel 4’s robot season, this show looks at how robots are being developed to offer relationship and medical advice to humans.

Jess is a robot being developed by both Manchester and Plymouth universities, using artificial intelligence to offer advice to families and couples on issues such as obesity, marriage and divorce. The question is whether a robot can ever really replace a human when it comes to providing advice on issues like these.

The Robot Will See You Now is on Channel 4 at 22.00.
