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 2: Your Move, Robot

To actually be helpful to humans, scientists need to teach robots to move like humans… How hard can it be?

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.
