Laura Beloff - Participant
The ROCA project is conceived on the basis of a renewed attention for the 'as if' dimension of robots in present day societies. Increasing use of social robots in health care, education and entertainment challenges the notion of the life-like not only in appearance but also in behaviour and social interaction. Cultural and aesthetic theories provide insights into the ontologies of robots (what defines a robot?) that leads to reflections on 'what defines a human being', as well as the epistemological foundations on which we base our knowledge of the world.
