Nope, not the Chuck Berry song, but I've included that also :wink: :lol: . Honey is that you?


It’s going to be hard to ‘resistor.’

A life-like cyborg was unveiled this week by engineers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore- – and is being touted as the first emotionally intelligent humanoid.

Nadine has been working as a university receptionist to test her skills — expressing a range of emotions and changing moods depending on the subject and tone of her conversations, according to UPI.

The robot uses software similar to Apple’s popular people pal Siri, but Nadine uses her social savvy to recognize people she’s met before and remember previous conversations.

“This is somewhat like a real companion that is always with you and conscious of what is happening,” said Nadia Thalmann, a robotics professor at the university’s School of Computer Engineering. “So in the future, these socially intelligent robots could be like C-3PO, the iconic golden droid from ‘Star Wars,’ with knowledge of language and etiquette.”

Social robots like the soft-skinned, brunette Nadine — who bears a striking resemblance to Thalmann — may one day also serve as office assistants and caretakers for kids and the elderly, she said.

Pretty cool. If you married her I bet you would never be wrong!
