J.P. Laumond is the scientific curator of the permanent exhibition at Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie. The aim of this exhibition is to help the general audience to understand the concepts of robotics. Indeed, the notion of robotics today is packed with many preconceived notions, phobias, and utopias, all fed by literature and a rich film culture. The real challenge of the exhibition is the presentation of authentic working robots that raises awareness of our relationship to these singular machines. How do they work? What are they for? What are their performances today and what will they be tomorrow? The exhibition lays bare the actual capabilities of robots and provides insight into the current issues.
