A gal and her robot

Heather Knight is an intelligent, outgoing, bubbly tech geek. Oh, and did we mention she's also a social roboticist?

So, what's a social roboticist, you ask? Heather says the best way to explain what she does, is to show you herself. So take a look at "The Next List's" amazing profile of Heather Knight and her robot, Data. She'll dazzle you with her ability to merge techy robotics with inspiring art, acting and choreography. Plus, she and Data, make a terrific standup comedy duo.

Together she and Data explore the roles of how humans and robots interact. And Heather's using that information to make better technology that can help people flourish — now and for years to come.

    I could think of a million ways for humans and robots to interact. I agree with High IQ'er i would think many women would want to be in a profession like this.
