Can robots be creative? Professor Gil Weinberg thinks so. And to make his point, he’s teaching about robotic creativity in a creative way. Instead of a traditional lecture, he’s using animation and music to explain the subject to school students and the general public in a compelling and simple manner. It’s Weinberg’s first swing at delivering a TED-Ed Lesson, following his TED talk on the subject.
In academia we develop novel robots and study the societal implications of their integration into our day-to-day life. We explore different ways in which humans could work and play with robots, and the benefits and potential risks of embedding intelligent machines in the community. Personally, I have been interested in the concept of robotic creativity and how it could inspire and enhance human creativity in areas such as music and art.
