Zucker Saltz, David
Over the past fifteen years, researchers from diverse fields including engineering, computer science, psychology, and theatre have been exploring ways to push the limits of robots' expressiveness and endow robots with more vivid, specific, and compelling personalities. This talk will offer a critical overview of this research, highlighting some of the radically different approaches to the problem, with a particular focus on recent theatrical productions that incorporate robots. The presentation will conclude with a live demonstration of Saltz's current project, Commedia Robotica.
