CARE Group student Alexandre Colle has delivered a talk on ‘Aesthetics and Robotics’ as part of the Design Informatics Webinar series.
Abstract from the talk:
“Social robotics has become a multidisciplinary endeavour, from human psychology to material engineering and to some extend molecular biology. A social robot is also a product. Accordingly it needs to exist as part of a larger narrative, embodied by aesthetics.
Design exists for aesthetics. Robotics ignores it.
In this talk I will present my research on how to better integrate aesthetics principles in robotics and its consequences for the industry and designers alike.”
