Affinity in Autonomy is an exhibition that ran during Milan Design Week. The event was organized by Japanese electronics giant Sony who explored the correlation between the human condition and the onset of forward-thinking technology. The exhibit places focus on the emergence of artificial intelligence and allows guests to explore well-curated rooms that boast things like "a field of white spheres that move as if they have their own personalities."

Affinity in Autonomy is not only an exploration of technological innovation, but it is also informed by various products that Sony has been working on. Dezeen specified that the company's robot dog Aibo is a key element in the aesthetic of the exhibition. Among other devices, this one was created in 1999 and updated with AI later on.
