Heather Knight and her team in the CHARISMA Robotics Lab at Oregon State are working on developing artificial social intelligence for robots.

Why should robots have artificial social intelligence? According to Heather Knight, assistant professor of computer science, if robots are going to help in hospitals or work with people in factories, they will need to be adapted to our social conventions.

From the College of Engineering at Oregon State University, this is “Engineering Out Loud” — a podcast telling the stories of how research and innovation at the University is helping change the world. “Engineering Out Loud” Season Nine focusses on robotics and AI, covering topics from from policy and ethics, to programming and practical applications.
