Persuasive Intent
Cynthia Breazel gives a TED Talk about the future of social robotics: As a grad student, Cynthia Breazeal wondered why we were using robots on Mars, but not in our living rooms. The key, she realized: training robots to interact with people. Now she dreams up and builds robots that teach, learn — and play.
