The Robots are coming! The Robots are coming! The Robots are…. here. In recent months, there has been an upsurge in the attention given to robots and artificial intelligence (AI) and their future role in our society. Robots, with intelligence, are advancing into beneficial, life-saving, machines for assisting us in our everyday lives. The challenge is determining how we, as educators, can best train the next generation of students for a future that is still evolving? How do we make robots accessible for the next generation of diverse students? This talk provides a first look at how robots are changing the texture of our day-to-day experiences. Through lessons learned in building robots that assist children with special needs, this talk will discuss the elements of intelligence, trust, and emotional empathy robots are emulating. It will conclude with how we, as educators, can best prepare our students to embrace this inevitable future.
