Will be speaking at the next Women summit

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:)
