As robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) become increasingly prevalent, in 2017, Akram explored their impact on human relationships in a thought-provoking documentary, Can We Live With Robots?, commissioned by Channel 4.
Travelling the world from the UK to Japan, Akram met with several scientists and their creations of AI that already coexist with humans. In doing so, he confronts his own scepticism of how we can form emotional connections with machines. Akram responds with a duet performed by Akram himself and Company dancer Ching-Ying Chien.
