Crossroads of Ideas: What Can Robots Tell Us About Our Humanity?

Loading Events

February 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Why do we build robots? Why are we fascinated by them?

In this talk — the third in a four-part miniseries featuring outstanding UW researchers who have received WARF faculty awards — Bilge Mutlu will argue that it is because we want to see ourselves in places we live, things we use — even technology. So robots reflect our desire to see ourselves in the technologies we use day to day.

This event will be held at the Discovery Building and will also be available on Zoom.

The Cap Times is the media partner for Crossroads.
