机器人能识别人类情感

    Japanese firm Softbank has unveiled a robot called Pepper, which it says can read human emotions.
    日本软银公司研制出一款名为“辣椒”的机器人,据称该机器人能识别人类情感。
    Softbank says it plans to launch the robot netmercially in Japan next year
    It uses an "emotional engine" and a cloud-based artificial intelligence system that allows it to analyse gestures, expressions and voice tones.   The firm said people could netmunicate with it "just like they would with friends and family" and it could perform various tasks.   It will go on sale to the public next year for 198,000 yen1 ($1,930).    "People describe others as being robots because they have no emotions, no heart," Masayoshi Son, chief executive of Softbank, said at a press conference.    "For the first time in human history, we're giving a robot a heart, emotions."   The firm will deploy2 prototypes of the robot at two of its stores from Friday, allowing customers to interact with them.   Analysts3 said that development of household robots was likely to pick up, especially in countries like Japan that have an ageing population.   "Even if one can pre-programme such robots them to carry out specific tasks based on certain netmands or gestures, it could go long way in helping4 improve elderly care," said Rhenu Bhuller, senior vice5 president healthcare at consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.    "And with the technology improving fast - you could see big improvements in managing labour requirement in the the sector6."   Softbank developed Pepper in collaboration7 with French netpany Aldebaran Robotics, in which it took a majority stake in 2012.   Bruno Maisonnier, founder8 and chief executive of Aldebaran said: "The emotional robot will create a new dimension in our lives and new ways of interacting with technology."   "It's just the beginning, but already a promising9 reality."   Softbank said it planned to subsequently station Pepper at more of its stores nationwide.   Growing market   Japan is one of the world's biggest robot markets.    According to some estimates, its overall robotics market was worth about 860bn ($8.4bn; £5bn) yen in 2012.   And with a rapidly ageing population, coupled with a falling birth rate, the demand for robots is expected to increase further.   The growth is expected to nete not only from businesses looking to offset10 labour shortages and rising wage costs, but also from households seeking an alternative to paying for care workers for elderly relatives.    Japanese carmaker Honda has also been developing a household robot, Asimo. US President Barack Obama played football with it during his recent visit to Japan.   ActiveLink, a robotics research subsidiary of electronics firm Panasonic has also developed technology to help people carry out manual tasks.
