Library Robot Coming to Welsh University

Something to watch. Don’t know how/if/when it will have an effect on library service but it’s interesting. 

“Hugh is useful for automating or simplifying tedious and mundane tasks. Things that both staff and users don’t want to spend time on,” said Pasi Chidziva, a member of the team working on developing Hugh’s AI. “As more powerful actuators are combined with human-friendly safety measures, maybe we’ll see a cousin of Hugh doing reshelving in the library.”
