Human-Centered Robotics is a somewhat broadly defined area looking at interactions between AI-driven robots and humans. Robots and humans must coexist in society, in the home, and in the workplace. An issue of particular urgency is how process robots, particularly in manufacturing, will operate efficiently without harming people, and without requiring complex programming skills to function in a changing environment.
Robotics companies and academic institutions are working to ease the way for an interactive robotics future. Here are a few videos of the current state of the human-robot interaction art:
