In this episode we look at natural interfaces with robots, and what the future will be like when personal social robots join us in our homes.

Our guest is Dr. Ross Mead, a robotics and artificial intelligence expert. While getting his PhD in Computer Science at USC, he focused on natural interfaces and spatial awareness with robots. Now Ross is the Founder and CEO of Semio, a company that creates software for social robots. Their development tools integrate speech and body language into smart machines, defining the way in which people will live, work, and play with robots in the future.

We talk with Ross about where robots and AI are today, and where they’re heading. We explore opportunities to improve our world through these technologies, and the risks and dangers associated with them.
