Would your love for robots go as far as putting your faith in them?

What would it take for you to trust a robot’s verdict? Would you allow it to change your beliefs or steer your life choices? Have a seat and meet Astrobot, an open-source astrology oracle. By means of a personal session with Astrobot, you could find out what the future holds for you.

Astrobot is a project by Stanislavs Semjonovs and Dr. Dertien (University of Twente) and makes grateful use of the recent developments of Google AIY and the open source Inmoov robot.

Astrobot is part of the exposition Robot Love. The exposition takes place until December 2nd at Campina Melkfabriek. Visitors of GLOW can get their Robot Love ticket for € 10,- instead of € 15,-.

Stanislavs Semjonovs is a student at the University of Twente and researches robots as social beings that can feel, think, and communicate with people.
