CNR 2012: Lectures: Robotinity: In mirrors of creative fusion beyond art and technology (JPN)
"Robotinity" is a new perspective that asks a question: What is the nature of being a robot?
The term "Robotinity" was coined as a direct parallel to the term humanity.
The nature of being human, by definition humanity, has been discussed and researched endlessly, and at this juncture in time we need to think of "Robotinity" to ensure a harmonious coexistence between human and robot in society.
This presentation will introduce the concept of Robotinity, through unique projects, exhibitions and the latest research results in Ars Electronica Futurelab.
As robots vary a great deal depending on times, cultures, creator's thoughts and social backgrounds, the search for Robotinity is mirroring our search for humanity.
This lecture also aims to provoke discussion for what we human beings create robot.
