UW-Madison Science Narratives and partners have joined together to create a 5-month video and audio adventure, exploring the work of Dr Bilge Mutlu and colleagues as they craft robots from a human perspective. It’s not just science fiction.


Watch Episode 5

In this next episode, UW-Madison roboticists discuss how quickly robotics research is evolving. How can robots enhance our human experience in ways that make it better?

Each month, Science Narratives posts videos or podcasts to their website. This project is a collaboration of the Division of Continuing Studies, DoIT Academic Technology and Storybridge.tv.
