In October of 2018, Pepper, a resident robot at Middlesex University became the first robot to present at a UK parliamentary meeting.  Pepper provided evidence to the Education Committee regarding the impact robotics and artificial intelligence technologies have on education.  The robot is designed for student applied research projects for elderly care and helping children with special needs, with a specific focus on its ‘soft skill’’ abilities.
