This Monday, the 15th, I’ll be participating in a discussion on human-robot interaction in culture & debate centre ‘De Balie’ here in Amsterdam. The evening is part of the ‘Kenniscafé’ series of discussions on current themes in science and technology. Themes will include social consequences of developments in robotics, requirements for interaction design and bonding with machines. Stefano Stramigioli (Twente) and Martijntje Smits (Rathenau Institute) will also participate in the discussion. Noel Sharkey and roboseal Paro‘s developer Takanori Shibata will contribute to the event as well. Quite a nice way to spend a Monday evening, rsvp here.
