What Does it Feel Like?

Can a robot make music? Is it possible to have a conversation with an AI? Will we use language to communicate with robots, or are there other ways?

Writer, performer and theatre maker Terry O’ Connor’s film is based on her collaborative theatre work exploring interactions between humans and robots.

Working with technicians from the Department of Computer Science, Terry also explores the idea of robots controlled by artists.

The film asks some compelling questions about the machines that will be part of our everyday lives in the near future. Can art help us understand and prepare for a technological revolution? And how will the revolution change art?
