In the news this week is Hong Kong’s robot humanoid, so lifelike that it can respond to face expressions, engage in conversation, and even make eye contact! It is beyond amazing what human’s can do with technology, however, making a robot human to me is a little too far. Robot dog? Yes. Robot cat? Yes. Robot looking robot? Yes. But a robot made to be exactly like an adult human! No.
Each to their own, we all have our own opinions, but I thought I would post this article as I still find it so amazing that we can make technology read and respond to our faces! What are your thoughts on this article?
