Man Vs Machine €

Tuesday 2 May-Tuesday 16 May 2006 The events feature Do-It-Yourself robots (or how to make a robot in ten minutes!) and a demonstration from the next generation of robot to be used on Mars. Also up for discussion is how computing is affecting creativity and how military research into robotics is set to change the landscape of war forever. Experts at the Dana Centre events include scientists from the University of Aberystwyth’s Intelligent Robotics department and Dr Chris Langley from Scientists for Global Responsibility, who will outline the extent of power the UK military has over the development of science and technology. As the world enters a new age of robotics, the Dana Centre – the Science Museum’s bar and café for adults to discuss contemporary science, technology, the environment and medicine – asks: what are the implications of a cyborg society?
