At "The Art of Humanizing Robotics" with Ken Goldberg

On February 26, 2016, the Light/Slant Salon series had an evening of wine and art at the Fused Space gallery in San Francisco. The conversation centered around the theme of humanizing robotics, and asked designers and thought-leaders to consider how to bridge the gap between man and machine. Journalist Olivia Solon played the role of moderator for the evening, asking the panel of experts to share opinions on everything from the portrayal of robots in science fiction to the ethics of machines. BCNM's Ken Goldberg was in attendance as a panelist, and Behnaz Farahi was slated to talk. Other speakers on the panel included Tobias Kinnebrew of Google Robotics and Yves Behar of Fuseproject.

How do we make our machines more like us: softer, friendlier, and—yes—more fashionable?
