Social robotics: the future of human-machine relationships

It has been only a few years since the first robots arrived at the workplace, as fast and reliable mechanical aids. Today we see robots working in far more complex situations e.g. in health care, at home, in education and in hospitality.

The ‘brain power’ of robots is increasing rapidly. Nowadays we create robots that can respond and adjust to changing environments. In the future, connected robots will be able to work autonomously in complex and unstructured environments. They will work interactively with humans, converse with them, understand their intentions, and even form social relationships. These social robots will make their own decisions, based on their (collective) social intelligence. This addresses numerous issues: psychological, social and ethical. 

This research meet brings you new scientific insights in the journey ahead.
