Cars that drive autonomously, robots that help elderly people in the household, or computers that help doctors with risky operations: machines will play an increasingly important role in the future. That is why more and more people are needed who can speak with machines – for example Harald Bergermann. He has programmed robots that are now speeding through a huge warehouse, helping human workers pack packages. The audience learns how important it is to be able to speak with machines and how to learn a programming language.
