A Japanese firm is releasing what they call a robot with “a heart”.
Japanese firm Softbank has unveiled a robot called Pepper, which it says can read human emotions.
It uses an “emotional engine” and a cloud-based artificial intelligence system that allows it to analyse gestures, expressions and voice tones.
The firm said people could communicate with it “just like they would with friends and family” and it could perform various tasks.
It will go on sale to the public next year for 198,000 yen, which is just under $2,000 USD.
