The latest episode of Robots dives into the world of Science Fiction with an interview with Patrick Gyger, director of one of the world's major Science Fiction Museums, the "Maison d’Ailleurs" ("House of Elsewhere"). Gyger discusses how science fiction informs on and also shapes the role of robots in society. He points to the important cross-pollination of science and science fiction and finally discusses the consequences of the ever accelerating pace of scientific progress and its consequences for the genre. The second part of the episode is dedicated to a small celebration of the genre with a re-recording of Jack Graham's Selkies. Read on or tune in!
