Robots in the classroom: an interview with Dr. Sofia Serholt

123

Listen to Neil Selwyn’s interview with Sofia Serholt (Chalmers University, Sweden) about her research on the use of humanoid robots in the classroom.

Sofia is one of the leading European researchers in the area of robots and education. In the interview, Sofia talks about her work on robots in the classroom – in particular her research on what happens when interactions between robots and students go wrong.

We talk about the varying levels of acceptance across education, the ethics of using robots with young children, as well as the dangers of over-hyping the possibility of ‘socially-intelligent’ AI.
