Saving the world, one robot at a time

In the news today

Monday morning news radio interview (in Dutch) on my talk at the World Economic Forum in Davos, who’s listening at that time? All my friends and colleagues while commuting it seems. Thanks for letting me know!

Almost ready for the Summit in Davos!


It’s giving a talk at the World Economic Forum Davos in the Nature IdeasLab section. I’ll be talking about…you guessed it! Socially intelligent robots. All thanks to Maja Pantic who dropped my name.


Big event for our lab: kids demo day!

A radiointerview with Daniel Davison (Easel PhD)

In the Jury of ‘radicale vernieuwers’

Its a contest for the most radical innovator of the year. I’m just boasting because I’m in the jury with among others, Neelie Kroes (just saying). Really great contestants with wonderful ideas that will change our world. In Feb. is the prize ceremony..

In kids science TV show

Stefano Stramigioli and I were on ‘De Kennis van Nu’ a kids science program in the Netherlands. The episode is called: the robots are coming! Watch it here.

29 Dec article in Intermediar

An article in Intermediar on why people may be scared of robots with some of my comments in it and an explanation about how difficult it is to get these suckers running properly for even just a week, let alone take over the world.

Will be speaking at the next Women summit

I think it’s a summit about women and leadership or impact. Not the next woman as in ‘the next woman your husband will be dating’. Fingers crossed..

Yes, I have become a board member type person

Press release of my new Position as Member in the Supervisory Board of the Open University. I am going to do my utmost to help the OU come out on top.

12 Dec Article in magazine Elsevier

A big fat article on our research in Elsevier magazine (nothing to do with the scientific publisher!). I always thought the magazine was a tiny bit right wing conservative but the journalist was really great and I am happy to know that right wing conservative people now also are aware of the great work we do on social robotics! Welcome to the dark side, we have smiling social robots:)
