Hong Kong Fair Report: The Future of Robotics & Artificial Intelligence
The Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) welcomed three robotics experts to the Hong Kong Electronic Industry Summit on Monday to talk about the future of robots in consumer trends and business applications.
Dr. David Hanson, founder and chief technology officer, Hanson Robotics, spoke about the relationship between consumer and robot, and where the industry is headed. According to Hanson, the future of consumer robotics looks a lot like “Bicentennial Man,” fake skin, personality, and learning included.
Hanson Robotics specializes in creating “human-like character robots” which interact and build relationships with their human owners. Hanson sees a future in which humans have live-in, human-scale, human-level intelligent robots that will perform everyday functions for the family.
