Androids on the horizon

http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,13256 … ticle.html

TOKYO (Reuters Life!) - Kansei frowns when he hears the word "bomb," smiles at "sushi" and looks scared and disgusted when someone says "president" -- and he isn't even human.

Japan's latest robot, called Kansei and created by a university research team, can pull up to 36 different facial expressions based on a program which creates word associations from a self-updating online database of 500,000 keywords.

The English keywords then trigger the most appropriate facial expression, which ranges from happiness to sadness, anger and fear.

"What we are trying to do here is to create a flow of consciousness in robots so that they can make the relevant facial expressions," said project leader Junichi Takeno, a professor at Meiji University's School of Science and Technology.

"I believe that's going to be a key to improving communication between humans and robots," he said.

The robot has 19 movable parts underneath the silicone face mask. When he hears the word "president," the online database picks up associated words such as "Bush," "war" and "Iraq" and creates an expression which mixes fear and disgust.

Takeno says that in a few years, Kansei will also have speech abilities and will be able to convey feelings, which could be useful in places such as nursing homes for the elderly.

Japan is hooked on androids, with several companies selling robots that mimic human action such as playing drums or dancing to music.

With Japan's population expected to slide by around a quarter by 2050, and immigration a sensitive issue, some laboratories have developed humanoid robots that can work as maids.

Earlier this year, a university researcher created a robot that looks and moves exactly like him.

Depends if the Island is still above water.  Maybe these Robots should be "trained"(programmed) as Lifeguards....smile

...great...robots making robots to entertain robots. I will be so glad to leave this silly game behind, I can't even express it in English.

Re: Androids on the horizon

Agreed. The next time I have a frequency changing event I am not going to freak out and run away from it. I am going to go into it. I have been given a chance to leave but I was too scared of the unknown to do it. Only those who have had those types of experiences will understand me.  wink

Re: Androids on the horizon

I feel like going back to the old school for a minute.  Hope ya don't mind.

Quote from Cs:
Q: (T) Of course. Most people would say that 'cutting edge' science is 25 years ahead of what we see, and I say it is more like a hundred years, and I am even off? Cutting edge science on this planet is more like 3 or 4 hundred years ahead?
A: More like 30 to 40,000 years "ahead!"

Now there's something to think about.

So the elites get to be god don't they? Manipulate us forever? Makes you wish they would move on and do something else instead of herding us.

ooo that four leged robot is eerily reminiscent of the walker aliens in War of the Worlds and Half-Life 2.

ANDROID ALERT!

Saw this video entitled "The Real Robo Cop and A.I.D. Documentary."
It's about the revolutionary police technology.

Re: Androids on the horizon

We should all be getting closer to the idea that those who walk amongst us could be something other than human. Remember, this is just levels of technology which have been born and grown to fruition in full view of the public eye. Now try to imagine what levels of technology would be available to the more secretive organizations.

Chinese and Japanese androids. .

Well its just a fake. YET. This could be a way to enforce humanity for the elite in the future, as more and more of us won´t cooperate with them.
