Kohei Ogawa | Meet the Media Guru

We shouldn’t be afraid of robots. These are the words of Kohei Ogawa, researcher and professor of robotics and artificial intelligence at the University of Nagoya in Japan. For some time he has been studying the interaction between people and Androids, robots that increasingly resemble human beings in appearance and behaviour.

Ogawa was part of the team that developed Erica, an ultra-realistic Android capable of autonomously interacting and showing a variety of complex facial expressions, good enough to read and present a newscast.

At Meet the Media Guru, Kohei Ogawa will talk about the relationship between people and android robots and the future of a Humanoid Society.

The main partner of MEET is Intesa Sanpaolo. The center of digital culture is also supported by Fondazione Fiera Milano and Sigest. Thanks to Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia.

Social Cast is the Meet the Media Guru activity that involves institution, people and enterprises to create a network that operates and interacts proactively in the events.
The people that are connected on-line can ask questions, send works, comment and expose their reflections on the evening; at the same time the people attending the evening in the hall are surrounded by and fully immersed in the contents projected and displayed in the surrounding environment. A perfect synergy between real and virtual!
