The symposium « Techno-réalités et créatures affectives : les dispositifs de simulation amoureuse », organised by Philippe Combessie and Agnès Giard will be held on June 14, 2018 at Paris Nanterre Universuty.
The techno-realities are seen as a threat to human relationships in “real” life, in particular when they relate to love. Such human-shaped products however multiply, notably in Japan: domotic spouse, tactile screen’s boyfriend, holographic companion, bride for Virtual Reality glasses, interactive downloadable partner… The purpose of this symposium is to analyze Love Simulation Devices as signals allowing users to express a variety of messages, even contradictory ones, yet to be deciphered within their specific contexts.
