Ishiguro's Robots

Listen to Ishiguro's Robots

Hiroshi Ishiguro is one of the top 100 geniuses alive in the world today – and the creator of some of the most life-like robots ever made. Ishiguro’s shockingly human androids (including his own doppelganger) have taught lectures, acted in plays and been programmed with a ‘bedside manner’ to act as nurses. In this video, Ishiguro introduces his creations … and offers a glimpse into our science-fiction future.

Presented in partnership with Speak to Me – Experimenta’s 5th International Biennial of Media Art.
