Uncanny Valley - Rimini Protokoll

Uncanny Valley Rimini Protokoll C Gabriela Neeb Liggend Gabriela Neeb
​In our industry, they barely look like people, but in Asia, humanoid robots have already been developed for some time, for example for care-work or as sex partners.

The external similarity to human beings makes the acceptance of machines easier. However, if the machine is too similar to a human, we grow wary: what is human, what is machine? Japanese robotics researchers call this weird similarity the ‘ uncanny valley’. Stefan Kaegi works with writer Thomas Melle, who allowed an animatronic double of himself to be made. What does it mean for the original when the copy takes over? Does the original get to know himself better? Do we, as the audience, feel as much empathy for a machine as for a human person?
