How to Create Your Own Humanoid: Robot Science Made in Japan
Have you ever made your own android? Dr. Ishiguro has. Leading international robotics researcher Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro, Director of the Intelligent Robotics Lab at Osaka University, lectures on his current humanoid and telenoid research. He covers hot topics such as brain-machine interface for the remote operation of androids, and other practical uses for humanoids, like theater. Erico Guizzo, Senior Associate Editor, IEEE Spectrum Magazine, presides over a conversation with Heather Knight, founder of Marilyn Monrobot.
