The ‘quest to make machines human’

|7 February 2017|

London

An exhibition celebrating the ‘500-year quest to make machines human’ will open in London tomorrow.

The Robots Exhibition at the London Science Museum – which will run until September – promises to be a fascinating look into the evolution of robotics and a pointer towards future trends.

“Focusing on why they exist rather than on how they work, this blockbuster exhibition explores the ways robots mirror humanity and the insights they offer into our ambitions, desires and position in a rapidly changing world,” the Museum’s website states.

“Join us on an incredible journey spanning five centuries, illustrated with robotic artefacts from around the globe. From a 16th century mechanised monk to some of film’s most iconic robotic creations and the very latest humanoids, Robots will make you look at yourself and society in a whole new way.”

The exhibition runs from 8 February to 3 September.
