Advanced robotic prosthetics are breaking down the difference between human and machine, while consumer products equipped with cameras, sensors, and software seek to observe and learn from our behavior. As smart phones, thermostats, and robotic vacuum cleaners become more autonomous and lifelike, people develop emotional relationships with them. Join Cooper Hewitt curator Ellen Lupton as she speaks with the field's top thinkers Carla Diana (Smart Design), Ayanna Howard (Georgia Institute of Technology), and Matthew Johannes (Johns Hopkins University) about how robots are changing the face of design and engineering.
