We’re living in a time of scientific discovery and achievement that is, well, remarkable. In this monthly series, host Meghna Chakrabarti will take your questions in deep dive discussions with researchers, scientists and innovators offering audiences access to what’s behind incredible scientific advances in a region world renowned as a hub of science and technology.
Life with robots once seemed possible only in science fiction with R2-D2 and C-3PO helping save the galaxy while audiences delighted in theaters. However, the future is now — scientific advances in artificial intelligence and robotics have brought robots into our homes and increasingly as part of our everyday lives. Join On Point host Meghna Chakrabarti on the Day of AI for a conversation focused on the future of human and animal interaction with artificial intelligence and robots.
