#Sophia – a human like robot from #Hanson #Robotics
On display at SXSW in Austin, Texas, Sophia is the company’s latest attempt to create a human-like robot, and the way her face moves is probably as human-like as a robot has ever gotten.
Sophia has 62 facial and neck architectures and a patented silicon skin called Frubber. She has cameras in her eyes that allow her to recognise faces and make eye contact. And she can participate in a conversation, using speech recognition software. She is even equipped with what Hanson Robotics calls its “Character Engine AI” software, or a personality.
