Data gossiping robots
This project is a speculation about future social relationships between artificial entities. Conformed as an interactive installation, it represents a robotic micro society where communication is based on rumors about the personal data of users’ profiles on social networks. Its objective is to be framed as a future scenario on the hybrid social coexistence between artificial entities and human beings. Conceptually, it explores the possibility that robots evolve as a group on a social and emotional level, to the point that they begin to count gossip as a tool of empathy, cooperation and recognition of colleagues in the group, as we humans do.
