Skövde is a municipality in central Sweden. When the pupils in four of their primary schools come back after the summer holidays a new educational assistant will meet up. Since the municipality has bought four robots to the schools. The aim is that the robots will assist in class in different ways, e.g. to help pupils that are lagging behind. The pioneering efforts to include robot assistants in education is triggered by Skövde University College with front-line research and development within a range of technologies, like artificial intelligence and cognitive and interactive systems.
