I’ve always said that the first season was the first act of my feature, so this is what I meant.

I’m not one of those typical receivers who’s like a robot in the slot or outside. — Doug Baldwin

‘Mr. Robot,’ in particular, signals the rise of a fresh post-Occupy portrayal of the wealth gap. No longer is the story of income inequity delivered via a well-meaning, crushingly earnest indie film by John Sayles or in a single laugh line on ‘Roseanne.’ — Alissa Quart

The call to rein in globalization reflects a belief that it has eliminated jobs in the West, sending them East and South. But the biggest threat to traditional jobs is not Chinese or Mexican; it is a robot. — Angus Deaton

I have a brilliant sound design team who’s been working with me since ‘Mr. Robot,’ and one of the things we always think about – and it’s also something we think about with cinematography – is how we get inside the characters’ heads and how do we place the audience where we want them to be or how we want them to feel at any given moment. — Sam Esmail

Looking ahead, future generations may learn their social skills from robots in the first place.

Morphy at the University of Washington happily teaches gestures to children by demonstration. — Daniel H. Wilson

With people, if you see something you want to change, you can make the change immediately. And if that doesn’t work, you can change it again half an hour later. You can’t do that with a robot. They’re terrible at experimenting. — Marc Randolph

‘Pump Up the Volume’ was a film and character that I really responded to. That was a movie about a guy trying to take down the establishment using a ham radio. I feel ‘Mr. Robot’ has a similar value.

I’m a dog person, I’ve had dogs all my life. But you see, it’s not really a dog. It’s more like a little robot. It’s an actor. It displays no emotion whatsoever. I swear that dog doesn’t know any of us even though we’ve done five seasons of Frasier. — John Mahoney

We frame things in an off-kilter way because it’s unsettling. In the ‘Mr. Robot’ world, that’s the norm, and it’s the norm for the point of view that we’re looking for, which is Elliot’s. With our compositions and our visual language and camera movements, it’s important to always evoke that unsettling feeling underneath every scene. — Sam Esmail

In the future, when Microsoft leaves a security-flaw in their code it won’t mean that somebody hacks your computer. It will mean that somebody takes control of your servant robot and it stands in your bedroom doorway sharpening a knife and watching you sleep. — Daniel H. Wilson

The other one I did was ‘I, Robot.’ I take apart Isaac Asimov’s Robots world. — Cory Doctorow

Most of the robots being developed for home use are functional in design – Gecko’s homecare robot looks rather like the Star Wars robot R2-D2. Honda and Sony are designing robots that look more like the same movie’s ‘android’ C-3PO. — Peter Singer

I love ‘Robot Chicken,’ ‘The Boondocks’ and ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos.’ Then there’s this show called ‘The First 48.’ It’s a documentary about killings where they try and find murderers. They interrogate people and they tell on each other – it’s hilarious. — ASAP Rocky

What the team at Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Mellon is doing today under professor Howie Choset is making the ‘snakebots’ stronger, smaller, and more maneuverable than ever. — Kelly Evans

People thrive on genuine connections – not with machines, but with each other. You don’t want a robot taking care of your baby; an ailing elder needs to be loved, to be listened to, fed, and sung to. This is one job category that people are – and will continue to be – best at. — Oren Etzioni

I think sometimes people can get lost in the bigger special effects, science fiction, robot stuff, and those are cool and fun to watch, too, but I think it’s so important to sometimes step back and watch something that’s about life and human interaction. — Dakota Fanning

I make mistakes growing up. I’m not perfect; I’m not a robot. — Justin Bieber

One thing I cannot stand is when people say, ‘Hi, how are you?’ and they don’t wait to hear how I am. They’re just going through the motions. I say to people: ‘Keep it human. Keep it alive. Don’t turn into a robot.’ You have to hear what the other person is saying clearly. — Judith Jamison

The most important thing for building a robot that you can interact with socially is its visual attention system. Because what it pays attention to is what it’s seeing and interacting with, and what you’re understanding what it’s doing. — Rodney Brooks
