Speech Title: Educational Robots and Their Usage Scenarios
Abstract: The educational robot is becoming the indicator product of AI education. It will be the representative technology of the future AI education. This talk discusses the concept and the properties of educational robot. It further explores the foundation of theory and technology of educational robot. Since the various educational robots have a wide spectrum of applications, so we can identify and explain the usage scenarios of educational robots from the usage experience. Educational robot is in its early stage and it must have a long development. Hence, it deserves to discuss the potential of educational robot and challenges of developing educational robot.
