Robot Actors In Plays And Performing Arts Likely One Day

It is easy to envision a not to distant day when computer controlled robotic actors are performing plays and musicals as well as many live performers. Computer encoded performances of previously live events can be persevered and performed identically in different theaters in different locations simultaneously or at later times, as well as original works.

Since the stage is a well defined, confined area and the other robot actors' actions are known and predictable, the actual engineering and computer programming effort should not be too difficult, once a data set of programmed human emotions is established. The dialogue can be prerecorded like the movie industry does for animated works, or computer synthesized.
