Hundreds of artificial intelligence scientists will be in Austin for an international conference next week.

University of Texas professors and students have a number of gadgets to show off at the conference, including some robots that aren't controlled by humans and can play soccer all by themselves.

On Monday, the conference is having an open house for the public. Professors encourage young people to check out the future of artificial intelligence.

"This is a great way to be inspired and get up to speed on what artificial intelligence is really about,” Peter Stone, a computer science professor, said.

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency and include demonstrations and discussions.
