Research activities

Becker’s research focuses on robotics and artificial intelligence, and more particularly on the relationship between humans and machines. It aims to better understand how so-called intelligent machines question our models on an ontological, interactional and societal level, regardless of their form. In a collaborative, interdisciplinary and sometimes critical perspective, the challenge is to study how objects resulting from robotics and artificial intelligence reconfigure relationships and practices. This work has led to numerous public presentations, the publication of articles and book chapters, and the writing of a book entitled Humanoïdes, Expérimentations croisées entre arts et sciences, published in 2015 by the Presses Universitaires de Paris Ouest.
