Hanson Robotics creates the most expressive and engaging robots that build trusted relationships with people.
Hanson Robotics has enchanted and captured the imagination of the world with uncannily humanlike robots endowed with remarkable expressiveness, aesthetics, and interactivity.
Professor Einstein rolls his eyes, sticks out his tongue, and can give a simple explanation of the theory of relativity. With his lifelike rubbery “skin” and bushy mustache, he can almost make you forget he’s a robot.
Einstein is the first commercial product from Hanson, which became known for producing humanoid robots like the flirtatious “Sophia,” which has life-like facial and eye expressions and can converse through cloud-based artificial intelligence.
Einstein, which is knee-high and responds to voice commands, can help kids with their homework, play games and answer questions about math and science.
“This is different from other robots,” said Rifkin, who noted that the “emotional bond” can be an important element in helping kids learn.
In the not-too-distant future, Genius Machines will walk among us. They will be smart, kind, and wise. Together, man and machine will create a better future for the world.
We make robots that have personality and come to life,” said Andy Rifkin, chief technology officer of Hanson Robotics, the Hong Kong-based firm which is bringing Einstein robot to consumers this year.
Robots will soon engage and live with us to teach, serve, entertain, delight, and provide comforting companionship. They will learn from us and we will learn from them. Every human interaction will have an impact on how they develop and who they’ll eventually become.
The search to improve and eventually perfect artificial intelligence is driving the research labs of some of the most advanced and best-known corporations. In the past few years, artificial intelligence has taken a big leap, Robots, Cars, Smart Speakers and other devices have started to connect our world and make the daily process streamlined and smarter.
