Designing robots - Designing humans

A three-day seminar discussing our posthuman future

Future Technologies, Culture and Learning together with ROCA invite all interested to participate in a debate on how robots will engage human beings as learners and cultural beings in the future.

Robot design is advancing at an incredible pace. Though many robots in practical reality are still far from the visionary imaginaries presented in movies like Star Wars, the design of robots is improving both the technical and social skills of the machines. Robots have expanded from being used for mechanical work in the industrial sector to be a new factor to be counted on as a companion for children in schools, as a teacher of adult education, a soother and comforter of elderly and nurses helper in the health care sector. As yet, very few empirical studies have looked into how sociable robots transform human relations and how human relations transform robots. For three days in March a group of robot researchers put a spotlight on questions raised by new robot designs and the way robots engage with humans.
