Pepper – “a culturally aware” robot – was designed to assist with the care of older people.
But next Tuesday she will be assisting members of the education select committee to understand the impact of artificial intelligence.
The committee will also quiz human experts during the session.
The committee will hear about her work with students at Middlesex University, including a project involving teaching primary school children.
After a demonstration by Pepper, the MPs will look at how robots can be used to support learning and how robotics will transform the workplace and classroom of the future.
