Humanoid Chat Robot to convene meeting
For the first time ever, the master of ceremonies at the ASAUDIT General Institutional Meeting will be a humanoid chat robot! Pepper the robot was manufactured by SoftBank Robotics and designed with the ability to read emotions and interact with human beings in numerous languages.
Pepper looks and acts like a human. It has eyes, ears, arms, hands and hips. It was created in France to start working in Japan. It began by working in a cell phone shop, meeting, greeting and assisting people with their requests. Since then, it has been deployed all around the world, and now it is here in South Africa! It is specifically designed to meet and pass on information to humans. It has some artificial intelligence that helps it to find and track human beings.
