Will a Robot be your friend? Movie Screening & Talk

Hello Roboticists!

On Saturday, March 23, Wonderfest presents UC Berkeley computer scientist Ken Goldberg to discuss artificial intelligence alongside the delightful Robot and Frank, one of 2012's sleeper movie hits. (Find Prof. Goldberg's ranking of all-time great movie robots here in the Financial Times.) Wonderfest's robot evening will begin with schmoozing in downtown San Francisco's Variety Theater Lounge. A special screening of Robot and Frank will follow in the intimate and super-comfy Variety Preview Room. And then Prof. Goldberg will share his thoughts and entertain questions about the current state of artificial intelligence.

Please join us for Will a Robot Be Your Friend?. Only 49 seats are available, so I recommend that you make your $20 ticket purchase right now (An RSVP to this meetup will not secure you a spot. You must visit the ticket link and purchase your ticket there All proceeds will be shared equally between Wonderfest and Variety Children's Charity of Northern California. Any intelligent machine would heartily approve of this enlightening and enjoyable expense!
