Vän Robotics Is the Future of Education

Mark Piening of Project Lighthouse.org pointed out in a LinkedIn Post the growth that robotics in education will be experiencing over the next decade will be a great opportunity for Vän Robotics, and we agree!

The World Economic Forum video he referenced pulled insights from futurist Thomas Frey. Frey believes robot tutors will be commonplace in schools and homes. From an article at Futurism.com:

"Today, those looking for a non-traditional education have limited access to online classrooms, especially ones that are for-credit and affordable. But Thomas Frey predicts that, within 14 years, learning from robots will be entirely commonplace — even for children.

"I’ve been predicting that by 2030 the largest company on the internet is going to be an education-based company that we haven’t heard of yet,” Frey said in the interview.

Frey is a futurist who began as an engineer at IBM and went on to found the DaVinci Institute, a networking firm and think tank for technical innovation to bring about a brighter future. Frey gives lectures and interviews on strategies for progress to high-profile audiences at places like NASA, the New York Times, and various Fortune 500 companies. He told Business Insider that he sees a future where innovators will enhance and improve the current landscape of online education."
