Robotics Interview Data

Here are some preliminary data from the robotics interviews I conducted this year.  I recorded responses when watching the video of the interviews and grouped the same or similar responses together.  There were lots of unique answers and I some of these were very interesting.  I will publish those next as the most notable quotes from the interviews.
