Please note: opening hours are indicative and will be confirmed by the venue closer to the event 

Meet PLEA2, an interactive biomimicking robot head. PLEA2 samples its environment and responds to the emotions on your face to determine how you are feeling. Be prepared – it will then show its affection for you! 

This proof-of-concept robot has been developed by Tomislav Stipancic at the University of Zagreb, demonstrating the latest developments in robots that are capable of interacting with humans in, for example, care settings. 

This event is produced by the Art AI Festival and supported by the British Science Festival. For further details about this installation, and details about all Art AI Festival activities at the British Science Festival, please visit:
