    https://www.singularityweblog.com/hiroshi-ishiguro/ I first met Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro at last year’s GF2045 conference in New York. Dr. Ishiguro is known around the world for his android, geminoid and telenoid robots and I have been trying to get him on my Singularity 1 on 1 podcast ever since we met. At last, last week we were able to find an empty slot in his busy schedule and I was able to ask him a few questions. During our 50 min conversation with Dr. Ishiguro we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: how and why he got interested in building androids and geminoids; whether it is possible to build disembodied Artificial Intelligence; what is human; the cultural East-West divide on the perception of robots as being good or evil; the uncanny valley and the Turing Test; the importance of implementing emotions such as pleasure and pain; the differences (or lack thereof) of hardware and software; telenoid robots…

        David Eliott David Eliott (born UK 1949) was an artistic director of the 17th Biennale of Sydney. He is a cultural historian whose main interests concern contemporary art, Russian avant-garde and the visual cultures of central and Eastern Europe, Asia and the non-western world from the late nineteenth century. Beginning in the early 1980s, he formulated a series of pioneering exhibitions in one of the first programs to integrate non-western culture with contemporary art. He has published a large number of books, articles and catalogues on these subjects and has curated many exhibitions. He has also written extensively about the present-day role and function of museums and contemporary art. Hiroshi Ishiguro Hiroshi Ishiguro is a director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Osaka University, Japan. A notable development of the laboratory is the actroid, a humanoid robot with lifelike appearance and visible behaviour such as facial movements. Ishiguro has made an android that resembles himself. Ishiguro's recent creations look like normal people. Robots, according to Ishiguro are poised to move from factories into daily life. The hope is that robots will one day help people with a multitude of tasks. Michael Burton Michael Burton (born UK 1977) works on the edge of speculative design and art. He creates objects, images and films as insights into richly imagined scenarios of the future. His work explores health and climate, challenges and the choices we face in evolving as a species. Burton exhibits internationally, most notably at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He leads a collaborative practice, working with organisations and individuals including scientists, performers, choreographers, designers and architects.
