Our lives are becoming increasingly permeated by algorithms and artificial intelligence, whether shaping our understanding of robotics in sci-fi films or influencing innovations in smart home tech. More than 200 examples from “Hello, Robot” demonstrate how this burgeoning industry is transcending the mere design of form and function—a development being met with optimism, disempowerment, and ambivalence. Among them are legendary robots from film and literature such as Star Wars’ lovable astromech droid R2-D2 to a manifesto-producing installation by RobotLab that illustrates the dystopian automation of creativity.
