In a new video on the future of robotics, Bloomberg Businessweek featured Professor Brian Williams’ Model-based Embedded and Robotic Systems Group (MERS) and their work with developing new methods for robots and humans to work together in efficient and successful ways. The video features Steven Levine, a graduate student at CSAIL, demonstrating his work programming a robotic arm that could operate alongside humans in a manufacturing setting. 
In the piece, Levine explains his group’s research motivation, which is develop robots that are easier to communicate with so that they will be more adaptable in human society.
