Oxford London Lecture


Where are the robots we seem to have been promised since the 1950s? What is the hold up? Are we nearly there now? For example, will cars be driving themselves soon? Professor Paul Newman talks about the nature and solutions of challenges which have arisen on the way to building machines that can labour, protect, explore, build, manufacture, care and drive in our name. Staggering changes in computing, connectivity and opportunity are coming together and this provides a platform from which to peer into what we should expect in the coming decade. Robotics will change us.
