A day in the life of robotics pioneer professor Hiroshi Ishiguro in the new episode of video series “The Performers” by Gucci and GQ. 

This season, Gucci partnered with GQ to bring the audience a special series of films, featuring some of the best talents from the worlds of food, music, art, architecture, acting and more. Each episode takes you on a pilgrimage to unexpected places, that have shaped the spirits and vision of the featured characters. The first film follows Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, act two features Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura. The other films feature Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton, the extraordinary Shanghai-based painter and performance artist Zhang Huan; and the acclaimed Japanese architect Junya Ishigami.

The latest series of “The Performers” let us take a peek into the daily life of professor Ishiguro in Osaka and Kyoto, and perhaps, each of us can get our answers figured out to the question: what is the distinction between humans and robots?
