DO ROBOTS HAVE SOULS? AN INTERVIEW WITH HIROSHI ISHIGURO

on June 26 | in notable talks & things | by | with 1 Comment

Robotics professor Hiroshi Ishiguro reinvented two human-like robots. This time they’re more developed and are said to be the world’s first news-reading androids that possess a sense of humour to match their language skills. Both androids will work at Tokyo’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, interacting with visitors to collect data for Ishiguro’s studies into human reactions to the machines.
