In support of the Ontario Science Centre’s Adopt-A-Class program
ROBOTICIZE ME – probably the first documentary ever co-hosted by a robot – is a fascinating documentary that explores the brave new world of human-robot relationships. Co-hosted by actor Peter Keleghan with his android sidekick RoboThespianTM, the documentary visits the epicentre of all things robotic – Japan – as well as a Robot Film Festival in San Francisco and MIT in Boston.
This event includes a panel discussion hosted by CBC Spark’s Nora Young and featuring leading experts in robotics, neuroscience and artificial intelligence, including actor Peter Keleghan, Dr. David Harris Smith (McMaster University), Dr. Frauke Zeller (Ryerson University) and Dr. Francis Jeanson (Ontario Brain Institute).
