Abu Dhabi: Robots will soon be teaching basic math and other subjects at a private school in Abu Dhabi.
Merryland International School in Mussafah has launched what it claims is the first robotic lab in a UAE school, with more than 30 cutting edge robots including humanoids with built-in intelligence.
Humanoid AISOY Raspberry Pi robot will teach basic addition and subtraction while Nao, the 57-cm tall Evolution Humanoid robot from France, will help special needs children.
Nao can walk, talk and even recognise emotions. The programmable robot can also be used to explore research topics in robotics, computer science, human-machine interaction and even social sciences.

Further mechanization is inevitable. Where the problem lies is in creating machines that can effectively become smarter than us, with the capability to manifest their inferences. The way I see it: machines can do the work, we can do the thinking.
