Botcaves

Botcaves

Botcaves was a workshop held in November 2014 investigating bots and the relation between their programmed, yet autonomous behaviour (software) and their physicalities (hardware embedded in objects) as well as the potential relation these small situated technologies would maintain with global scale cloud infrastructures.

Students designed and developed bots who took part in online activities. In some cases the bots were using electronic sensors as an input, while in other cases they used online data and expressed it using robotics.

The final results were presented at the end of the week.

The process and the results are documented on the IICloud’s blog: iiclouds.org
