Pixelspaces I: Human Robot Harmony – Humanoid Robot „Honda ASIMO“

4. 9. 10:30 – 15:45

Ars Electronica Futurelab and Honda R&D are currently conducting collaborative research into the next generation-relationship between humans and robots. From industrial robots supporting the production process to humanoid robots, many researchers have explored the range of possibilities for robots. Recently, these robot technologies are integrated mostly with information technology, and we see the robotization of physical space emerging. Therefore the applied research contains important questions, such as how will we integrate technologies like the “Humanoid Robot ASIMO” into our daily life, and how we can influence human acceptance and coexistence.

Panel 1: Human Robot Interaction Design
4. 9 10:30 – 12:30

In the Human-Robot Interaction Design session, we will discuss how we can apply methodologies from the fields of art, motion, communication, and interaction to the problem of finding ways in which human robot interactions become natural and intuitive.

Panel 2: Human-Robot Harmony
4.9. 13:30 – 15:45

What is essential in creating harmony in a society living together with robots? We will take a close look at the key elements in considering the balance – not the border – between humans and robots.
