Global Science Café/Czech Centres: Robot 100

08 Jun 2021   18:00

Karel Čapek wrote his play R.U.R., subtitled Rossum’s Universal Robots, a hundred years ago. The play not only introduced the word “robot” for the first time, but it also asked questions that are still being addressed by scientists all around the world even today. Last year, the publishing house of the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague published the book Robot 100 which includes not only the original play’s script but also essays by a hundred authors representing an array of professions – above all scientists – both Czech and international. The Czech Centres’ Global Science Café will feature the book’s editor Jitka Čejková and three of the authors who contributed to the book. Together they will explore Čapek’s work and robots from various angles. The panellists are – the theatrologist Jana Horáková, the AI expert Tomáš Mikolov and the chemical engineer specialising in chemical robots František Štěpánek.
