Contributory Info: Hanson Robotics
The mission of Hanson Robotics can be seen on their website, hansonrobotics.com. It reads:
“Hanson Robotics was founded in late 2003 to awaken intelligent robotic beings, grant them sparks of true consciousness and creativity, and distribute these beings and their constituent technologies into the world…Hanson Robotics seeks to understand and model the human being, deliver living robotic characters to the consumer, and accelerate progress towards greater-than-human intelligence in machines. We hope you will join us in this quest to build a better, smarter future.”
Recently, Hanson Robotics has released ROBOKIND, “a fully expressive, walking, intelligent [robot] to help facilitate your best research ever.”
