Connections: Monthly Science Roundtable explores human and robot interactions
It's our Monthly Science Roundtable, and we're talking about robots. Specifically, how to make robots more efficient, better at decision-making tasks in complex situations, better at performing tasks with common human motions, better at understanding language. That's all fascinating, but there are many ongoing conversations about whether we should want those things to happen; after all, automation is taking jobs.
Our guests talk about the research, the progress, and what it might mean. In studio:
