Robots Learn to Express Human Emotions

This is a short clip from technologynewsvideos entitled "Robot Baby Learns How to Express Human Emotions." It is an interesting video showing the advances the robotics community is making with Artificial Intelligence in relation to cognitive functioning. Robots (as well as Virtual Agents) are incorporating more of a human element to their user interface to augment the friendly feel and personable connection between man and machine.

Where do we draw the line? To learn more about the future of humanoid robots check out this 2014 documentary, Future Humanoid Robots- From Fiction to Reality.
