Event Details:

Historian Jessica Riskin and computer scientist Oussama Khatib will join the Libraries' digital research architect, Nicole Coleman, for a conversation about the latest developments in robotics today and how, since the seventeenth century, the design of artificial life has been a reflection of our understanding of our relationship to machines. See the full event page for more detail and readings.

"Androids, Automata, Avatars, and Agency" is part of the AI "Dialogues" series, hosting Stanford faculty for cross-disciplinary conversations at the intersection of human and machine intelligence.
