In recent years robotics has gained tremendous interest not only in the research community but also by the general public. By some it is seen as the ultimate machine that will make our lives very easy by
doing all the work for us, others fear the implications of such a future regarding the job market and disruptive effect on the social order. The lecture will briefly introduce the different aspects of robotics and the tremendous recent developments like Deep Learning and the availability of powerful yet cheap sensors. Afterwards a few scenarios we be presented and discussed.
