Japan-based filmmaker John Williams, who spent a sabbatical last year with us, has made a new film which will be on release in Tokyo from Saturday 30 June for three weeks with English subtitles. The film 審判 or "The Trial" is based on Franz Kafka's famous work but set in contemporary Tokyo.

My research on robots focuses on robots and automated systems in urban and social spaces. It includes the whole range of non-industrial robot experimenting, from autonomous vehicles and delivery drones, healthcare robots, to social and service robots. I currently work on three projects: the politics of humanoid robots in Japan, the urban living labs for robot experiments with focus on Dubai, Singapore, California and Japan, and medical delivery drones in sub-Saharan Africa.
