The human project

May 1st / August 1st, 2021

From the first mechanical devices of ancient Greece to the new frontiers of Artificial Intelligence, man has always been attracted to the idea of creating an artificial fellow creature.
The exhibition retraces the relationship between human beings and their doubles, revealing to the public the results achieved so far, the extraordinary technological developments and the frontiers of contemporary robotics and bionics.

This exhibition, realized in collaboration with leading research institutes such as the Institute of BioRobotics of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna di Pisa and the IIT in Genoa, aims to offer a key for the future, with an immersive approach with a technical-scientific, anthropological and artistic scope, revealing how the interaction between man and machine is becoming more and more real.

After presenting the ancestors of robots, ancient masterpieces of technology, the exhibition gives space to modern robotics applied to medicine and neuroscience, i.e. bionics.

Visitors will also be able to interact with the “Cobots”, robots able to recognize and trasmit emotions, connoted of great utility and with high social acceptability. The impressive technological progress in these fields, the open perspectives and all the possible implications also carry with them ethical, social and cultural issues of primary importance, on which we need to reflect.
