Edinburgh Centre for Robotics in the Sunday Herald

"Robots that can understand human emotions are being brought into Scottish schools to help with teaching. It’s hoped the machines will be used to assist in subjects such as history or geography – and because they can sense when children are bored, frustrated or unhappy, they’ll be able to adapt their teaching methods in a simpler way to a human tutor."

Patricia Vargas, Ruth Aylett and other research from the Centre talk about their research in the article "Reading, writing, arithmetic ... and robots: the emotionally literate teaching machines being pioneered in Scotland" published in the Sunday Herald.
