2:00 - 3:00 pm PST

Elementary School | Find The Robot | Prof. Elisabeth Weiss

Did you know that we will be interacting with robots in our everyday lives in the very near future? Join Professor Weiss and the students of WRIT 340: Advanced Communication for Engineers as we follow the robot through familiar settings like the kitchen, grandma’s house, a local hangout, school, the office, the dance studio- and even Mars! Guess what the robot is doing there. What purpose does it serve? Does it know it’s there?
