Outline of exhibition

Here you can reflect on human existence by meeting the world's most advanced androids.

The research on Androids (human-like robots) is advancing with unprecedented speed, and the day when they become indistinguishable from humans may arrive soon. How will our perception of being human change? What will then separate us from these robots? As you talk to and watch the movements of some of the most advanced Androids, consider a future where humans share their environment with robots, and reflect upon what it means to be human.
