Like it or not, at some point in your life, you will live with a robot, says Guy Hoffman. And that’s why the renowned robotics expert is on a mission to make robots more fluent, more engaging, more graceful, and well – more likeable.

Hoffman calls them “robots with soul.” In his viral TED talk he delves into why and how he’s leading the innovation for and the movement toward integrating robots into daily lives.

The assistant professor at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University and formerly the co-director of the IDC Media Innovation Lab in Israel, Hoffman explores robots social intelligence – how they think, feel, act and move – as they interact with humans. He also investigates human-robot interaction, collaboration and learning, and develops models and mechanisms that enable robots to act jointly and fluently with humans, and practice being better teammates.
