ANAT Salon Sydney | Emotionally Engaging the Machine
- When 7 Nov - 7 Nov 2019
Level 1, Barnet Long Room, 31 Alfred Street, Circular Quay, Sydney
5.30PM - 8PM
ANAT Salon Sydney brings together leading artists to explore and discuss human interactions with robots and machines.
As the boundaries between people and machines begin to blur, what does this mean for the way we relate with machines? Can humans emotionally engage with robots and machines, and vice versa? Or are emotional interactions with machines notional, unintentional reactions driven by anthropomorphism? What senses (if any) do AI’s use to emotionally engage with humans?
Join the ABC’s technology reporter, Ariel Bogle in conversation with Professor Mari Velonaki Director of UNSW’s Creative Robotics Lab, together with artists Dr Belinda Dunstan, Justin Harvey and Dr Wade Marynowsky.
