Robots acting on stage. Artificial intelligence playing Igo. Now robots are increasingly resembling humans, thus making human life more and more mechanized. At a time when the border between robots and human seem to be blurring, where should we find our humanity? What is the definition of human? Prof. Ishiguro (Roboticist), Mr. Hirata (Playwright) and Mr. Kobayashi (Professional Igo player) exchange ideas on these questions, which are sure to arise in the upcoming android society.
