Hallo Robot - meet your new workmate and friend...

From dolls to industrial workers, Bennie Mols and Nieske Vergunst reveal the history of robots and how they have developed over time, how they see, feel and act. They also point to the future: robots already sort our fruit and vegetables and make our cars. Soon they could be cleaning our homes, teaching our children and keeping our parents company in old age. In this fascinating talk Bennie and Nieske will reveal how moving artificial intelligence could rescue survivors from collapsed buildings, and boost the fight against hunger and pollution. They will also look at what robots learn about human speech, why evolution designs the best robots and ask if rogue robots take over the world? What the future holds: 2100, a Robot Odyssey...
