Rise of the Machines: Meet Bina48

27 Mar

Over the weekend, I attended a symposium that featured panel after panel of dynamic black women.

Amplify! Black Women of the Movement - Feature

All of the speakers were inspiring and motivating. Stephanie Dinkins shared her conversation with a “black woman” who wasn’t in the room, Bina48.

This was my first introduction to Bina48, a social robot modeled in the image of the creator’s wife.

I celebrate fierce black women, but I thought Bina48 was a bit creepy. But after I got home, I remembered my own experience with laser scanning.

FMA - Laser Scan - April 2015

Hmmm. When time permits, I might create a mindfile account, where “death is optional.” Who knows? Perhaps the second time around will be better than the first time.
