This brief reflection on the work of Dr Ben Goertzel and Dr Julia Mossbridge's Loving AI Project considers the current limitations in developing humanoid robotics that teach human participants how to be more loving, by modelling behaviour in workshop settings. Through a discussion of the historical role of the uncanny in the arts, this paper investigates the places and possibilities for action in what evades calculation and quantification in human and more-than-human relations.
