RISE OF THE ROBOTS

Machines are everywhere. They run our factory assembly lines and make our coffee. But humanoid robots—machines with human-like capabilities—have long been the stuff of science fiction. Until now. Fueled by an ambitious DARPA challenge, the race is on to design a robot that can replace humans in disaster relief situations. NOVA investigates the cutting-edge technologies that are advancing robotics—and the enormous challenges that robots still face. Finalist- Jackson Hole Science Media Awards. (PBS/NOVA 2016).
