Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results from a design critical reading (Bardzell & Bardzell, 2015; Bardzell, Bolter, & Löwgren, 2010) of the AI-powered social robot Cozmo. Cozmo was released to the market during the fall of 2016 and is described as a “supercomputer on treads”. It comes in the form of a small forklift-like vehicle, which most prominent features are the caterpillar bands that drive it, the lift in front of it, and a screen, ef-fectively displaying stylized graphical facial expressions.The design critique will focus on the notion of programmability (Chun, 2008; Pa-rikka, 2014) and how this condition may affect human-technology relations (Ihde, 1990; Nørskov, 2015; Verbeek, 2011).
