Signing off in this Cynthia Breazeal keynote, the founder and director of the Personal Robots Group at MIT says that “robots are about people.” Discussing the potential for robots to help stimulate creativity and social interactions, Breazeal comments that at the present moment robots are about interacting with things not people.

Through her research, Cynthia Breazeal has discovered that children are able to interact with robots on a level that stimulates an emotional connection and investment. Robots don’t have to be restricted to carrying out mundane tasks, they are in fact in able to illicit compelling social responses and reactions.

Robots have the potential to become the next development towards social technology, they can interact with adults and children like partners and present them with possibilities that encourage creativity, interactions and compassion.
