In her science fiction novel Die Nacht war bleich, die Lichter blinkten (2019) Emma Braslavsky describes a dystopian Berlin of the future: humans have partner hubots made to measure while they are under police surveillance by other anthropomorphic computing units. After a reading from her book, she discusses with Rainer Mühlhoff (TU Berlin) and Hanna Hamel (ZfL) about neighbourhood and living together with intelligent machines.
