Major players in robotics joined the Whitehouse’s “We the Geeks” Google+ hangout series to discuss the positive impact of robots in the future.

“Here at the White House, we’re hard at work keeping our eye on the robots, and as we celebrate one car-sized robotic rover’s 1st year on Mars, we wanted to update you on the state of American robotics and the possibilities for robots to improve life on Earth.” [whitehouse.gov]

The panel, moderated by Vijay Kumar, Tom Kalil, and John Green included:
Rodney Brooks, President, Rethink Robotics, with Humanoid Robot, Baxter
Daniela Rus, Director of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, MIT
Matthew Mason, Director, Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University
Robin Murphy, Director of the Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue, Texas A&M University
Allison Okamura, Principal Investigator, Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine Lab, Stanford University
