巴里美术馆 Explores ‘Uncanny Valley’ in New Exhibition on Automata and Robots

安珀·肯尼迪

In 1978, robotics professor Masahiro Mori coined the term "uncanny valley" to describe the uneasy feeling humans have when they encounter increasingly humanlike robots. A new exhibition at the 巴里美术馆 will delve deep into that valley, inviting viewers to engage with automata and robots to better understand what it is to be human.

"运动/情感:从自动机到机器人的情感探索, 2月开幕. 10, draws inspiration from the museum's collection of historical automata. 自动机是一种动态雕塑,早于现代机器人. The collection includes 19th-century porcelain dolls that seemingly come to life.

The exhibition highlights how contemporary artists 伊丽莎白 King and Joseph Morris continue the tradition of giving humanlike qualities to clearly nonhuman figures. The show will also display how 老道明大学 researchers and alumni are designing robots to tap into human emotion to train and comfort people.

"Using the organizing factor of humanoid robots has allowed us to assemble a comprehensive cross-section of contemporary artists and scientists who explore the myriad of ways that robots evoke emotion,夏洛蒂·波特·卡西奇说, 巴里艺术博物馆的执行董事. “宝博游戏大厅正版很高兴有机会首次展出RESEARCH过的作品, developed and fabricated by ODU faculty and alumni for industrial applications staged alongside artistic interpretations."

艺术的解释

In her Richmond studio, King creates sculptures that look like mannequins, but move like humans. 非常注重细节, 金使用定格摄影来制作人物动画, 每一个微妙的动作都传达了身体和情感的动作. She seeks to "blur the boundary between actual and virtual object," according to her 网站.

相比之下, 莫里斯制作他称之为“情感机器”的雕塑," capturing human movement in objects with no resemblance to the human form. Morris uses technological processes to make materials - like plastic film, 电子及机械零件, 软件和弹簧钢-呼吸, 像人的胸部一样起伏.

在他的 艺术家的声明, 莫里斯写道, “每件作品都是同理心的实验:一台机器, 或者一个物体, 或者一种声音试图让你意识到自己身上的某些东西."

科学的解决方案

Three robots in the exhibition built by ODU researchers and alumni use intuitive technology to address human challenges, 从孤独到偏见再到威胁评估.

这次展览标志着“大卫的计划”首次公开亮相,这是蒂娜·古斯汀构想的远程医疗机器人, 奥杜大学远程医疗创新中心的联合主任, Education and RESEARCH (C-TIER) and clinical manager for the Pediatric Telehealth program at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters (CHKD).

古斯汀遇到了大卫·凯里, 在CHKD与急性淋巴细胞白血病作斗争的患者, 同时为她的狗狗提供宠物治疗, 佛法. 她向凯里的父亲提到了她的工作, 迈克尔, who suggested a robot could provide a way for hospitalized children in isolation to visit with other patients or engage in playroom activities without leaving their beds.

古斯汀与Yiannis Papelis合作, 弗吉尼亚建模学院的RESEARCH教授, 分析与仿真中心(VMASC), 为儿童制造第一个远程医疗机器人. 这款机器人是为了纪念大卫而命名的,大卫于2019年去世,年仅13岁. The team worked with students at the Governor's School for the 艺术 to identify a kid-friendly design, constructing a prototype with the approximate height of an average 8-year-old child. 该团队希望今年在CHKD开始测试原型.

“我想如果宝博游戏大厅正版造的这个机器人正确的话, 无论是在功能上还是外观上, 你会忘记它是个机器人,古斯汀说. “我想让它成为孩子的代理人, 我想让他们感到独立,并与其他孩子一起参与."

凯莉的母亲, 伊丽莎白, believes the project has limitless potential and could someday be used in schools or nursing homes. She envisions David's Project could provide users a sense of control w在这里 they have none, 以及他们迫切需要的联系. When David had rare opportunities to connect with friends or indulge in his love of cycling, 她立刻看到了不同.

“它把宝博游戏大厅正版的孩子还给了宝博游戏大厅正版,”她说. “这是宝博游戏大厅正版所熟知和喜爱的大卫的生命线."

机器人训练执法人员和军队

Robots are also being used to mimic real-life scenarios faced by law enforcement. 思米公司., an autonomous solutions company started by ODU alumni Johnny Garcia '11, has created an 自动降级机器人训练器(ADRT) 那将在展览会上展出. The ADRT uses humanlike robots to train law enforcement personnel how to read dialogue, body language and physical movements with the goal of de-escalating tense or potentially dangerous encounters.

Robots are also being used to provide military with realistic moving targets for training. 思米设计 人类类型目标(HTT) as mobile, trackless smart targets that can be deployed in a wide range of environments. HTT系统是半自治的, 能够预编程场景,为学员获取即时反馈. 这些机器人有安装在轮子上的3D躯干.

机器人技术为培训提供了几个优势, 包括不断的重复, 节省时间和成本, 数据捕获和回放.

“随着机器人技术的使用, 人工智能和数据科学, law enforcement and military can create reusable environments to provide realistic training at a fraction of the cost,加西亚说. "I am excited the 巴里美术馆 is showcasing SimIS's autonomous systems in the exhibit. That reflects the importance of the multiple disciplines ODU provides to its students and industries to create environments that make the world a better place to live."

“运动/情感”由萨拉·伍德伯里作为嘉宾策划, 威廉学院美国RESEARCH的博士候选人 & 玛丽. The exhibition is presented by The George and Grace Dragas Family Foundation and Dragas Companies with support from Susan and David Goode. The exhibition advisory committee includes Gustin; Khan Iftekharuddin, interim dean of the 巴顿工程学院 and 技术; Peter Eudenbach, ODU art department; Petros Katsioloudis, 达顿教育学院 and Professional Studies; and Yvette Pearson, ODU哲学和宗教RESEARCH.
