Robots are the current climax compounds of burgeoning technology and, without doubt, standing at the center stage of countless industrial errands, scientific research, and artistic design. While continually being anthropomorphized, robotic machines in effect own a distinct physical angle than humans and interpret the world through a unique vision and language processing system. In our design, we encourage people not to take for granted how robots understand the surroundings but engage in an interactive, provocative, and open-ended inquiry concerning the robot’s intelligence. Our robot’s not merely an auxiliary tool, but the dazzling and glittering protagonist. Leveraging on assorted emerging technology, we will guide through our audience a full course of robot’s sensing, interacting, interpreting, and expressing. We wish to propose a thought experiment empowered by concrete installations, through an array of design sophistication, for the audiences and speculators to question, reflect, and contemplate on the contemporary human-robot relationship.
