14 Human – Machine – Robotics

-
Hauptschule
Seminar
english language

Technologies are mirrors, reflecting physical, cognitive and social characteristics of humans and human society. Thus, they have to satisfy, among others, both aesthetic needs and affective needs. Two approaches stand out here: creating machines which can feel, think, and act in the real world, based on  Affective Developmental Robotics and the design of interactive systems that are aesthetically pleasing in the way they  feel , beyond just beautiful visuals. In the seminar, we will explicate and discuss the theory and practice of those two aspects in detail, and try to find an intersection.
