Human.V.oid

Human.V.oid Banner Final

A movie about humanity and machine paranoia

Originally written as part of our 2040 production, Human.V.oid is a courtroom drama, which is now brought to you in movie form. In 50 minutes, Human.V.oid questions the place of robots (or AI / machines) in our society by 2040, and what it takes to be ‘human’.

About Human.V.oid

It’s the year 2040. A patient has died under the care of a (human) doctor and a medical humanoid assistant. In court, a jury tries to determine whether this loss was due to a machine, or a human error. Meanwhile, protestors gather outside the court, and two siblings from the opposing sides challenge each other.

After Movie with Marieke and Cozmo (the robot)

After watching Human.V.oid, an open discussion about some of the key topics of the movie awaits our audience. Radboud University researcher Marieke Wieringa will be moderating this session. “My research focuses on communication between humans and social robots. Here I focus on the way in which we are influenced by robots that simulate human emotions.” Marieke is not only going to bring a critical perspective and expert knowledge about AI, humanoids, and robot-human interactions to the discussion, but she is also going to bring Cozmo the robot with her for our audience to interact with!
