How will recent developments in technology change our lives by the dawn of the next decade? Robotics Professor and director of the CREATE Lab Illah Nourbakhsh will lead a general discussion about trends in technology – sensing, big data, robot kits, mobile devices – where is it going, and how will that affect our practice and reality over the next decade.
Robotics Professor Illah Nourbakhsh is the director of the CREATE Lab, and author of Robot Futures, recently published by MIT Press. In his book Nourbakhsh contemplates what might happen in the not-so-distant future as robots become both ubiquitous and highly capable – with superhuman abilities in both the physical and digital realms. how we will share our world with these creatures, and how could our society change as it incorporates a race of stronger, smarter beings? Nourbakhsh hopes this book will help us envision, discuss and prepare for change, so that people and communities can influence how the robot future unfolds.
This Lunch & Learn is part of See for Yourself, a month-long residency of the CREATE Lab at Assemble. CREATE Lab partners use and assemble robotic technologies to measure, express, share, advocate and change – by making visible what is often invisible.
