How can robots aid the creative process? We take a look at an exhibition at Paris's Grand Palais entitled "Artists and Machines". We also explore the other side of the coin with dance choreographer and mechanical engineer Amy LaViers - she tells us how her research focuses on creative expression as the starting point for refining and expanding the movement of robots. Finally, in Test 24, we meet "Zac", a virtual personal assistant made by a French startup.
