The topic was about artificial intelligence. AI is very prevalent because artificial intelligence and one of its most advanced carriers, intelligent robots, are becoming more and more popular in our daily lives. The show asked what roles should robots play and should we fear the rise of the AI and robotics in our daily life? Sanbot Elf, together with hosts Sean Fletcher and Emma Barnett along with the other four guests had a discussion about robotics and AI.

One guest, Critty, together with other guests pointed out that robots can help us solve massive problems if we program them correctly. Critty stated, if we input proper programs and install the right applications, robots can help out with a lot of problems in education, healthcare, transportation and many other industries.


Right now, people are developing robots and using them in various industries. In the future, more and more artificial intelligent robots will be applied into our daily work and lives.

As one of these advanced robots, Sanbot Elf is helping people solve various problems. In hospitals, you can see Sanbot Elf handling basic health care problems like patient education, reminding them to take their temperature or medicine, and big data management. In schools, Sanbot’s cute appearance and multi-function capabilities can help students foster learning interests, analysis ability, gain confidence, and more. Sanbot Elf also serves customers in restaurants, shopping malls, and hotels.
