Homo Roboticus: VUB, Brussels

In an increasingly robotized society, you and I explore and discover new technologies. Although robotics and artificial intelligence can help humans and nature, they also often generate fear, because they threaten to overpower us. History teaches us that technology has the power to strengthen economic growth and transform societies. This will be more than ever the case with the emerging robotics and artificial intelligence. The applications are ubiquitous: from robots in the factories, the conversion of people to cyborgs, self-driving vehicles to killerbots.
