Earlier this month, another huge crowd of roboticists, artists, and filmakers converged on Manhattan for the second annual Robot Film Festival, a daylong celebration of robots on film. Founded by Heather Knight of Marilyn Monrobot and Carnegie Mellon University and co-organized by Marek Michalowski of Beatbots, the festival’s goal is “to highlight innovation, explore frontiers before technically feasible and investigate the impact of humanity and machinery interrelations.”
