It is part of a VR and Immersive installation, PRISON X, supported by Sundance Talent Forum, Tribeca and now, Co-Creation Studio at MIT Open Documentary Lab, with the support of JustFilms at Ford Foundation.
Artist talk Baladi will present a selection of artworks that stemmed from the Vox Populi archive she gathered since the 2011 Egyptian uprisings and other social global movements.

BIOS OF PARTICIPANTS
PERSONAL ROBOTICS GROUP
The Personal Robots Group focuses on developing the principles, techniques, and technologies for personal robots. Dr. Cynthia Breazeal and her students conduct research that advances the state-of-the-art in socially intelligent robot partners that interact with humans to promote social and intellectual benefits, work alongside with humans as peers, learn from people as apprentices, and foster more engaging interaction between people. More recent work investigates the impact of long-term, personalized Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) applied to quality of life, health, creativity, communication, and educational goals. The ability of these robot systems to naturally interact, learn from, and effectively cooperate with people has been evaluated in numerous human subjects experiments, both inside the lab and in real-world environments.
