Join us to watch and discuss a performance of Karel Čapek's (1920) play "Rossum's Universal Robots," the work that introduced the word and concept of "robot" to the world.  

When robots rise up, will humanity fall?

See you on November 10 at 7pm in E5 6006.  Free admittance & free popcorn!

This performance is a presentation of Battle Damage Theater.

Artificial intelligence will take your job! Genetic engineering will accelerate the loss of biodiversity! The modern smart-city is a privacy disaster! Killer robots and technological progress are out of control! Is the techno-apocalypse upon us? Should we run for the exit? Or are there more nuanced ways to understand the complex interaction between technology and society and values?
