Human Robot Harmony – Humanoid Robot „Honda ASIMO“ 2010

Ars Electronica Futurelab and Honda R&D were 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.

 

On Tuesday night May 13 Hondas ASIMO humanoid robot brought attention to the newly established The Power of Dreams Music Education Fund for Detroit youth at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) by conducting the orchestra as it performed "The Impossible Dream" to open a special sold-out concert featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Recently, these robot technologies were integrated mostly with information technology, and we see the robotization of physical space emerging. Therefore the applied research contained 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.
