Dr. Cynthia Breazeal is an Associate Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she founded and directs the Personal Robots Group at the Media Lab. Cynthia discussed the work that she and her team are currently engaged in at MIT. Beginning with what inspired her as a little girl to go on and study robotics — C3PO and R2D2 in Star Wars — Cynthia summed up robotics as the expression of a drive towards human self-understanding that spans philosophy, science, and even performance art.
