City of Androids

A child robot uses an artificial neural network and location data to recognise where it is and what it is seeing within the Melbourne CBD. Participants can wheel the child around and it will recite stories it creates based on its surrounds. Emerging intelligent systems are increasingly impactful on our lives. The research investigates shared creativity and empathy with non-human systems.
