Director at the Center for Computer-mediated Epistemology
Henrik Scharfe is Director of the Center for Computer-mediated Epistemology at Aalborg University in Denmark. He is also the proud owner of the Geminoid-DK, the latest addition to the line of geminoids: an ultra-realistic android that look exactly like its master. The DK is the only geminoid to take up work outside of Japan. The android regularly receives guests at his office at the university, and also takes part in events and experiments in many different locations, trying to shed light on human robot relations. The Geminoid is an amazing thinking tool that replenish power to some very deep questions, including the role that technology plays in our present and future lives.
Henrik Scharfe lives with two bodies. One was born in Denmark in the late 60'ies, and one was born in Japan in 2011. At this event, he will bring both of them to face the challenge of thinking about the deep future. As a viewer on YouTube commented: "There is a party in the Uncanny Valley, and this guy is invited".
