    Can Robots replace teachers in colleges and universities?
    Judging by the way some lectures are delivered, devoid of soul, I thought robots were already endemic.

    Other professional and advice giving roles, such as those of doctors and lawyers, are already being subject to research into algorithmic replacements. So, in time, yes, AI systems may well be able to deliver lectures, ask and answer student questions with some skill. Would it be a good thing? Probably not. Would it be cheaper than employing real lecturers? That's the only reason they would do it.

    It depends what you're asking really; as it stands now, no, probably not, although they could supplement it. In the future, who knows? It seems a lot more likely that this could happen further down the line, although I still think it would be in a complimentary manner, rather than by complete replacement.
