An interactive challenge in which, as a team, you will attempt to identify the 'robot' from live performers, using a few questions. This is followed by a 'debrief' with Bournemouth University researchers, where you'll discuss your tactics and explore the mystery behind the experience and what it implies about different kinds of minds.
Imagine a future where robots and humans looked identical: how would you know who is human? In this 30-minute interactive session, as a group you will enter a space that will act as a time tunnel into the future. There you will meet two actors and face the challenge of making this very decision (the ‘Turing test’), choosing from a set of questions to help you identify the 'robot'. You should be wary: not all responses are as they might seem, and there are many kinds of human minds.
