In January, Discover magazine and the National Science Foundation continued their Grand Challenges event series with a panel discussion at Carnegie Mellon University exploring the dynamic world of robotics.

The panel included four eminent roboticists — Javier Movellan from University of California San Diego, Rodney Brooks from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, William "Red" Whittaker from Carnegie Mellon University, and Robin Murphy from Texas A&M University — who discussed some the big questions on the future of their field: How will robots transform industry, health care, and warfare? Will they ever be our equals? The conversation was moderated by DISCOVER editor-in-chief Corey Powell. See the videos here: http://discovermagazine.com/events/grand-challenges-of-science-robotics/
