Community, craft, and the vernacular in artificially intelligent systems take the position that everyone participating in society is an expert in our experiences within the community infrastructures, which inform the makeup of robotic entities.

Though we may not be familiar with the jargon used in specialized professional contexts, we share the vernacular of who we are as people and communities and the intimate sense that we are being learned. We understand that our data and collaboration is valuable, and our ability to successfully cooperate with the robotic systems proliferating around is well served by the creation of qualitatively informed systems that understand and perhaps even share the aims and values of the humans they work with.

Using her art practice, which interrogates a humanoid robot and seeks to create culturally specific voice interactive entities as a case in point, Dinkins examines how interactions between humans and robots are reshaping human-robot and human-human relationships and interactions. She ponders these ideas through the lens of race, gender, and aging. She argues communities on the margins of tech production, code, and the institutions creating the future must work to upend, circumvent, or reinvent the algorithmic systems increasingly controlling the world, including robotics, that maintain us.

How robots and bubbles could soon help clean up underwater litter

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun. But these simple life affirming pleasures are easily ruined by the presence of litter, which if persistent can have a serious negative impact on both the local environment and economy. However, help is at hand to ensure the pristine nature of our coastlines.
