ROBOT is set in the Yale Social Robotics Lab where Brian Scassellati designs robots we enjoy being around and are helpful in our homes and schools. The film features NICO and KEEPON, robots who are becoming socially intelligent: they teach us lessons, learn to dance and even cheat while playing games with us. Written by
