KLRU Schedule | Age Of Robots

What is a robot? A robot is: a mechanical device capable of interacting with its environment; a shell for artificial intelligence; and, a machine that can autonomously perform an assigned task. THE AGE OF ROBOTS takes us beyond what baseline definitions describe, and helps us better understand why they've fascinated us for centuries. Robotics is at a crucial point in its evolution. We've reached an interesting and exciting time as this field is finally coming to terms with a number of technical, practical and even philosophical issues. THE AGE OF ROBOTS records this key moment in history through decisive contributions offered by European research labs. This engaging series guides viewers through the discovery of the most intriguing robotics projects Europe has to offer, including machines that will impact our future or are, in fact, already part of our everyday lives. The episodes feature many different kinds of robots in action: from androids created to entertain to machines designed to explore inhospitable habitats; and, from the wonders of biomimetics to the cities of tomorrow. Throughout the journey, a panel of three experts analyzes the proceedings with commentary and guidance directed at the robots and technologies featured in each episode. Nick Bostrom, philosopher and Director of the Programme on the Impacts of Future Technology at the University of Oxford, traces a path to the future, dealing with the possible impact of these technologies on human society. Carlo Ratti, engineer and Director of Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT, offers a technical point of view on current research. And, Bertolt Meyer, psychologist at the University of Zurich - who was born with a congenitally missing lower left arm and wears a prosthetic limb - will handle the psychological and social standpoint.
