Robots: Androids, Human Presence and the Uncanny Valley
     




Hiroshi Ishiguro from Osaka
University is very
well
known for creating
uncannily life-like androids. In the latest episode of the Robots podcast, Ishiguro introduces his
android creations, including a robotic replicate of his then 5 year old
daughter, a female android modeled after the NHK news announcer Ayako
Fujii and a copy of himself, the Geminoid. He explains Android Science
and how his explorations of the uncanny valley may help to understand
human presence. This episode then features the last quarter of Science
Fiction author Jack Graham's
"Selkies". Tune
in!
