Abstract

The advent and commercialization of humanoid robotics has enabled Australian Libraries to access and utilise this technology to help develop digital literacy skills within their communities and to engage their communities in unique and innovative ways. Sam Kingsley from The Brainary and his robotic companion NAO will investigate the implementation of humanoid robotic technologies in Australian Libraries. The focus will be on the challenges, benefits and unexpected outcomes that this technology produces through the lens of Australian and International case studies.
