Pepper at the "Noc knjige"...

One of our Pepper robots was involved with the Noc knjige at our Faculty, showcasing the robot reading skills and also hosting a pub-like quiz. Noc knjige (Croatian Book Night) is an event organized every year since 2012, marking the World book day and Croatian book day, with the aim of popularisation of reading and promotion of books. Since the 2023 edition of Croatian Book Night was organized with the theme "Do robots dream of electrical books?, it was only logical for our Pepper to participate.

On April 21st 2023,  the Central library of FER, lead by Mrs. Branka Marijanovic, organized an event "Book night at FER" that included two talks about artificial intelligence, one from perspective of computer science (held by professor Marko Đurasević from FER) and the other from the more philosophical point of view (held by professor Luka Perušić from Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences). Our robot Pepper joined the dean, professor Bilas, in opening the event by reading a passage from "2001: A Space Odyssey", was the host of the quiz for the four high-school student teams and closed the event by reading out the laws of robotics proposed by Isaac Asimov.
