Japan, as it seems, has always been in the forefront of robotics, and they recently unveiled the world’s first android newscaster.
The android newscaster named Kodomoroid, developed under the supervision of Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro, has taken the world by storm. Mr. Ishiguro says the android newscaster he has developed has perfect language skills and even sports a sense of humor. The aim for most robot and android developers is to create a superior artificial intelligence that can compare itself to that of humans. The research around artificial intelligence has substantially increased in the last couple of years, and experts say that we could expect intelligent and versatile household androids as soon as 2025.
