UW-Madison Science Narratives and partners have joined together to create a 5-month video and audio adventure, exploring the work of Dr Bilge Mutlu and colleagues as they craft robots from a human perspective. It’s not just science fiction.


Watch Episode 3

In this next episode, UW-Madison roboticists explore the uncanny valley. That is, the more human a robot looks the deeper our sense of unease. Do you agree or disagree?

Each month, Science Narratives posts videos or podcasts to their website. This project is a collaboration of the Division of Continuing Studies, DoIT Academic Technology and Storybridge.tv.
