Karel Capek, one of Chzechoslovakia’s most renowned playwrights, wrote R.U.R. in 1920. This visionary play addresses concerns about the loss of human individuality. It presents immediate correlations with contemporary issues of artificial intelligence and scientific cloning. R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) first coined the term robot.
