Ready the final report on ICSR 2013 International Conference on Social Robotics held on 27-29 October 2013, Bristol, UK


You, robot
Robot residencies at the Science Museum, October 2015-April 2016.
In 2015, the Science Museum will be mounting a major exhibition on the history of robots. You, robot will explore how our human self-perception has been manipulated, codified and projected in new robotic forms over hundreds of years. And, most intriguingly, it’ll explore questions of why we are fascinated by robots, machines that may look or behave like us.
Anthropomorphism remains a uniquely human characteristic, but while the human form has long been a central subject of art, portrait and sculpture, it has also been a central concern of mechanism. This will be the first time the subject has been explored in an exhibition.

Please contact Ben Russell for further information.
