Evolution of a Cultural Icon

Robots: Evolution of a Cultural Icon examines the development of robot iconography in fine arts over the past 50 years.

Since then, the image and the idea of a robot have evolved remarkably from an awkward, mechanical creature to a sophisticated android with artificial intelligence and the potential for human-like consciousness.
