Social and service robots aren't the only applications for AI and robotics. Better route planning in dynamic environments and visual recognition for picking operations are worthy goals on the way to general-purpose robots.

Savarese will demo Stanford's Jackrabbot, a mobile robot designed to operate in pedestrian spaces at a maximum speed of five miles per hour. Jackrabbot is a socially aware robot Stanford is using around campus to study human behavior.
