Let’s face it, Robots will eventually take over; it’s just a matter of time. They might look silly, doing some kind of funny dance, playing soccer, performing their daily pick and place routine in factories, or helping us to win or lose wars, but, their combination of artificial intelligence, neuro-biology, and computer science will make them irresistible.
In the past two thousand years people have tried to build humanoid machines, sometimes with magic (Rabbi Loew’s Golem) and sometimes with mechanics. Though the results have often looked spooky or ridiculous, they’re proof of our obsession with emulating creation. These days, humanoid robots have become just a small facet of robot science, but they remain intriguing and seductive.
Robert Lippok’s Robot ep is a portrait of the euphoria and naivety of 20th century robot science. Throughout the ep he uses the technology and the spirit of early 90’s techno in combination with field recordings and a sense for romantic melodies to explore and elucidate our relationship and fascination with robots.
