Fujitsu Showcases Talking Robot
Fujitsu America this week is showcasing a number of enterprise innovations at Oracle OpenWorld 2017. Among the highlights is the introduction of its first commercial robot, which speaks and interacts with people using artificial intelligence to help it understand human emotions.
The interactive talking robot uses Human-Centric AI Zinrai, which is the Fujitsu approach to artificial intelligence, to learn and analyze human emotions based on such factors as tone of voice, while using a camera to recognize emotions and faces. The resulting analysis allows it to generate suggestions based on specific interests.
The robot will be used for consumer and industrial purposes such as at reception desks, care facilities and other service jobs. It has achieved a natural level of conversation thanks to cloud technology that stores data from conversations.
