CB2 baby robot developing social skills.
In the nearly two years since it was first unveiled to the world, the
Child-robot with Biomimetic Body, or CB2, has been developing social
skills by interacting with humans and watching their facial expressions,
according to its creators at Osaka University.
Comprised of robotics engineers, brain specialists, psychologists and
other experts, the research team has been teaching the android to think
like a baby by having it evaluate facial expressions and classify them
into basic categories, such as happiness and sadness.
