PSR "The emotional Turing test"
Test showing on 26 September 2020 of “The emotional Turing test”* by Robin Jonsson
Test 1: Pain
”the more we regard a robot as a social presence, the more we seem to extend our concepts
of right and wrong to our [behavior] toward them”
– Heather Knight, roboticist
I am testing the first part of the project ”The emotional Turing test” for an audience. In the project, I focus on if, how, and why humans think that a robot feels feelings. In this first part, robots are to appear as if they are feeling pain and other similar feelings. The ethical aspects of causing robots pain are complicated and not well understood. This will be included in the presentation.
The viewing is a test where I need an external audience that can experience different scenes and then share their experiences and thoughts with me. Please book ahead since the number of seats is limited.
Warning: If you don’t want to see a robot being tortured then you should not attend this presentation.
About The emotional Turing test: The project will premiere in its entirety in the fall of 2021 at the festival “Rum för performance” at Norrlandsoperan in Umeå.
