Self-driving cars, surgery bots, Siri. We’re familiar with the robots of science fiction and fantasy, but in the not too distant future, robots will play an even bigger part in our everyday lives.
We have already welcomed robots into our homes, cars and pockets, so what’s next? Will they be joining soldiers on the battlefield, sitting next to us in the office or replacing our human friends? Join Marita Cheng, Toby Walsh and more for a discussion on the exciting (and sometimes daunting) developments in robotic technology.
This event is suitable for families and will include an audience Q&A.
Presented by UNSW Centre for Ideas as a part of RoboCup 2019 Sydney, an international robot soccer competition and robotics conference.
Part of the UNSW Grand Challenge: Living with 21st Century Technology.
