Humans, Puppets and Robots: What’s the difference?
Wed 2nd August | Doors 6 PM | Free Entry | Bar
Join us for an evening of thought-provoking talks and discussion, as we look at the similarities between humans, puppets and robots, in the company of Professor Samit Chakrabarty, a neurobiologist at the University of Leeds; Anzir Boodoo, a puppeteer and co-founder of The Puppet Parliament; and Dr Raymond Holt, Deputy Director of the Institute of Design, Robotics and Optimisation.
We will be talking about how humans, puppets and robots deal with movement and dexterity, issues around decision making and disability, and just how difficult it is to define the boundaries between all three. It promises to be a lively and thought-provoking evening
Closing Event & Performance
