The #AskIoT team sits down with Tra Vu to discuss how robotics and IoT work together, how robotics are playing a role in mobility and aging in place and what makes people scared of robots.

In this episode, we dive into how IoT plays a role in robotic telepresence, influencing the healthcare, education and business landscapes to enable people to participate in experiences without actually being in the room. We also discuss why people shouldn’t be worried about AI and robotics taking more jobs than they create and how younger generations can begin learning about these new emerging technologies.

#AskIoT Questions:

  • How do robotics and IoT work together?
  • What are some of the most common IoT use cases you have seen for the elderly?
  • Do you believe AI and robotics will take more jobs than they create?
  • Should people be fearful of AI/Robotics?
  • My 10-year-old has a high level of interest in technology—how would you start their education at home in areas such as IoT and robotics?
