Charlie Caper, Chief Creative Officer, at Furhat Robotics, presents at the 2021 Web Summit in Lisbon. He showcases the company's current technology and discusses the importance that social robots will play in in both the present and future, including public roles in travel information, healthcare screening, job recruitment, education, and entertainment. He also evaluates the differences between screen-based voice assistants and embodied robots, noting that research suggests that people are more likely to engage and connect (cognitively and emotionally) with physical robots.
