Monthly Virtual Lecture Series: The Emotive Machine

March 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In a conversation inspired by our newest exhibition, Motion/Emotion: Exploring Affect from Automata to Robots, artist, Joseph Morris, and Dr. Khan Iftekharuddin, Professor & Interim Dean, Batten College of Engineering & Technology, will discuss their fascinating work and dissect the intersection between robotics and humanity. Mr. Morris makes kinetic sculpture, coded with software that instructs it to move and appear to breathe, and Dr. Iftekharuddin has been using the NAO robot & artificial intelligence to explore emotion with autistic children.
