Lecture: The Significance of Learning and Robot Research -- What is a Human? What is Mind?

Although robot R&D started with that of industrial robots, R&D of robots active in our daily life has been actively pursued in recent years. The most important challenge in this field of research is human-robot interaction. Dr. Ishiguro has led the world in this research. In this lecture, he will talk about what human-robot interaction research is and what we can learn from that while introducing various robots he developed.
