Princeton University is set to launch a robotics team this fall that will focus on robotics and machine learning in the classroom.
The school announced on Tuesday that it has hired 20 full-time robots to teach in classrooms.
The robots will be able to teach students how to do basic computer tasks.
The team will be headed by Dr. Matthew St. Clair, who is the school’s vice chancellor for research.
“Princeton’s robotics team is a natural fit for the university’s commitment to science and technology and will give our students the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their full potential,” said St. Louis, who will also lead the Robotics Center.
“The robots will work with our existing teaching staff to help teach students the fundamentals of robotics and computer programming, as well as develop new technologies for teaching and learning.”
The robots were originally developed at Princeton’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
It is the only institution in the country to use robots in robotics work.
It also has been working with the robotics team since 2016.
“We are excited to be partnering with the Robotics Team on this initiative and look forward to sharing new research results and lessons learned,” said Principal Investigator Dr. William C. St Clair, vice chancellor and provost for research and technology at Princeton.
“As the nation’s leading research university, we are focused on finding new and exciting ways to teach and help students learn more about the world around them.”
