Abstract

In this article we examine the possible challenges facing the use of the concept of « care » or « taking care », when the carer is an autonomous robot, what we call an « artificial medical care agent ». In other words, we ask if robots can care. Against the majority of arguments in the existing literature, we argue they can.
