Leila Takayama is an expert on robots, she is interested in building robots that interact with people, that do things for people in their day-to-day lives, not just in factories and on battlefields.
We all are intimidated by robots, but that goes away when we interact with them. We quickly fall into talking to them like they’re alive, like they’re our partners, or pets.
Scientists are making robots easier to live and work with. Now robots have body language, so we can interact with them easily.
