Pepper, the emotion-sensing robot
The gradual evolution of technology in the time we happen to live in seems pretty amazing. In this particular case, history unfolds before our very eyes. For the first time, an advanced robot is announced to be made readily available to consumers worldwide, priced at about AUD2000. According to Pepper's developers, in the future these robots will become as indispensable as smartphones. Healthcare and attending the elderly is what we hear the developers are aiming for as well. Allegedly, Pepper will be connected to the cloud, where it will store its gained collective experience, making the process of learning quicker and much more comprehensive. Take a look at a great video report and discussion on Pepper, the emotion-sensing robot, below.
