Top £32,000-a-year private school appoints an AI chatbot as its new 'headteacher' in UK first

Robot Abigail Bailey will support human headmaster Tom Rogerson in his duties

She's a 'headteacher' who won't give unruly pupils a ticking off in her office or make speeches to the school at assembly.

For the new 'principal headteacher' at a leading private boarding school is an artificial intelligence robot named Abigail Bailey.

Her digital image gives the impression of a well-presented and smart professional and Tom Rogerson, the human headmaster of Cottesmore School in West Sussex, believes she will play an important role.
