Robots in Depth with Daniel Lofaro

In this episode of Robots in Depth, Per Sjöborg speaks with Daniel Lofaro, Assistant Professor at George Mason University specialising in humanoid robots.

Daniel talks about making humans and robots collaborate through co-robotics, and the need for lower-cost systems and better AI. He also mentions that robotics needs a “killer app”, something that makes it compelling enough for the customer to take the step of welcoming a robot into the business or home. Finally, Daniel discusses creating an ecosystem of robots and apps, and how competitions can help do this.
