On Monday Kit Bradshaw of Sky News Swipe interviewed some of us involved with the recent robot operas at the University of Sussex (see http://www.sussex.ac.uk/broadcast/read/40568).
The report is due to air this weekend on Sky News at the following times (UK):
- Friday: 2130
- Saturday: 1030, 1430 & 1630
- Sunday: 1130, 1430 & 1630
(Subject to cancellation if there are breaking news stories or other big events).
You will also be able to view it from Friday evening on the Swipe YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLG8IrydigQfckEQNNdxoPiQ0GtAJLP5_5
I hope one particular bit didn’t get left on the cutting room floor. When Kit asked the robot “How did it feel to sing in a robot opera?”, the robot replied “Hmm. Well I’m sure it was wonderful for the other performers and the audience, but not for me. I’m not conscious, so nothing feels like anything for me. In fact, I don’t even understand the words I am saying right now!”
