What is a robot? Is it a piece of hardware? Is it software? Is it both? Is it supposed to look like us? Are spambots robots?
Lirec, an EU-funded project exploring how we might live with robot companions, invites you to a demo & panel exploring the definition of robots in the world of industry and research.
The event will start with a private view and showcase of 3 Lirec robots at the Science Museum (part of the upcoming RobotVille exhibition) followed by a panel discussion at the Royal Geographical Society just up the road.
This discussion will be chaired by Olivia Solon, Associate Editor of Wired.co.uk and feature 4 panelists from academia & industry alike: Peter McOwen (LIREC), Ghislaine Boddington (body/data/space), Dr Dan O'Hara (Weavrs), Matt Jones (BERG).
