The University of Texas at Dallas has announced that David Hanson will be speaking on the future of "Human-Like" Robots on Thursday, November 20 at 5:30 p.m., in Room 1.112 of the Conference Center on the UTD campus in Richardson, Texas. The talk is free and open to the public. David Hanson is best known for K-Bot, the human-like robot head that has prompted many a bad pun here on robots.net. Hanson's robot head is intended to be a duplicate of his girl friend's head. The head is so life-like that some feel it may be a good test of Masahiro Mori's "Uncanney Valley" theory.
