How do I submit the story?
You could submit your story via the forms provided earlier.
How are the stories chosen?
A random generator will choose around 5-10 stories.
How long does it take for me to tell you the story?
It takes about 30 minutes to 1 hours for us to go there, listen to your story, and record it.
How will the story be used?
The story will be integrated into a conversational mechanism that allows people to talk to and know more about you.
👉With your consent, we can adjust the conversation as you like.
How will the robot look?
I hope the robot could look a bit like you. 🤖 Not realistically though. It would be a cartoon-like robot baring some of your features -- big eyes, long hair, sporty, melancholy, etc.
When will the robot be built and showcased?
The work will be showcased at Light Night Leeds during 5-6 October and Lightwaves 2017 during 8-17 December in the UK.
How will the audience experience the work?
The audience have to do a bit of "treasure hunt" to find all robots in the city and discover the personal stories to the places!
