I, Worker

Ishiguro Hiroshi and Hirata Oriza at Osaka University have gotten a bit of press for their production of “I, Worker”, a play in which two human actors interact with two Wakamaru robots.

In the play, the two robots work for the two humans, and one robot begins to question its lot in life. The play seems to raise some interesting philosophical questions, such that in addition to being an interesting human-robot interaction, it discusses human-robot interaction in a separate context too.
