Kansei Robot Gets All Emotional

Posted 3 Sep 2005 at 03:02 UTC by The Swirling Brain Share This

The robot named Kansei, which means "sensibility" and "emotion" in Japanese can express feelings by way of smiles and frowns. Kansei has speech recognition software, a speaker to vocalize, and motors that contort artificial skin on its face into expressions. By using a 430,000 word database each programmed with pleasantness and unpleasantness and by each word's association to other words, Kansei can determine which emotion to express via its artificial consciousness program when a sentence is heard. Randomness is also incorporated so that the robot develops its own taste for certain things which generate an emotional response also.
