Resistance is Futile: Exploring our Evolving Relationship to Robots in Today's Wired World

From Karel Capek's 1921 play R.U.R. to the Terminator films and Battlestar Galactica, fears of a robot apocalypse have been pervasive in science fiction. Yet, we increasingly look to robotics and artificial intelligence to enrich our lives. Some scientists even suggest that we will have intimate relationships with robots in the near future. Will robots usher in a revolution or a cultural renaissance? Join us for a lively panel discussion on our evolving relationship to robots as well as our fears and desires in today's wired world.

Universal Robots is made possible by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Swing Space program, which was created with lead support from the September 11th Fund.  Project space is donated by Capstone Equities.
