theodp writes “If you’re a math, CS, or engineering grad, odds are you’ve seen your share of robot-like teaching — but never an actual robot teacher. Now, that’s starting to change. Computer scientists are developing robots with social components that can engage people and teach them simple skills, including household tasks, vocabulary, elementary imitation and taking turns. Several countries have been testing teaching machines in classrooms. At USC, researchers have had their robot, Bandit, interact with autistic children. South Korea is ‘hiring’ hundreds of robots as teacher aides and classroom playmates and is experimenting with robots that would teach English.”
