Handshake: Robotics and Intuitive Interaction, 2020
Handshake: A Interactive Robotic Installation, was initiated by swissnex Boston and AATB, in close collaboration with the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York, the Swiss Federal Office of Culture, and swissnex San Francisco. This project and its global reach were made possible by the generous support of the global swissnex network, Présence Suisse, and Pro Helvetia.
The third public event in the Handshake series on robotics and human interaction is a collaboration between swissnex Boston and the Embassy of Switzerland in Japan.
This panel conversation includes robotics experts from Japan and the US as well as the design duo AATB from Switzerland. The panelists discuss questions that arise around designing for intuitive Human-Computer Interaction systems and how human-robot collaboration is impacting human social interaction now and in the future.
This early-morning event on the East Coast of the US is simultaneously a late-evening event for our Japanese audiences and truly bridges cultures and continents around these universal questions relating to our future with technology.
