The Social Robots – Digital Artefact Pitch — Nicola Carnevale

The idea behind my BCM325 Digital Artefact was to incorporate the idea of robots and artificial intelligence having the ability to replace humans in jobs such as a ‘social media influencers’.

In the scheme of things, I’m imagining between the short to medium timescale.
