The 2011 meeting of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) drew to a close yesterday. Several plenary lectures are available. One of these, by John P. Holdren offers a particularly clear view of the Obama administration's policies and initiatives with respect to science and technology. Holdren, as Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), is very well positioned to provide a clear view of administration priorities and efforts. While he makes no direct mention of robotics, robotics is clearly included beneath the broad science and technology umbrella.
