The World Robot Conference 2016 has recently been concluded this Tuesday in Beijing, China. Attendees met various advanced robots including Xiao I, which took first place as the robot with the best human-computer interaction technology. The voting for the winner took place in Orlando just days before the event began with Cortana, Siri, and Amazon's Echo among the others that competed.
Xiao I Equipped With Decade's Worth Of Information About Life And Industry
Xiao I stood out as the top competitor as it is capable of understanding the complexities of the human brain, the process by which humans think, and can analyze several human languages. This feat is thanks to the massive amount of data placed on the machine which comprises decades of information regarding daily life and industries. With this, Xiao I can receive a certain set of instructions, process it, and analyze the context of the command, all of which was demonstrated during the world robot conference 2016, the Mirror reported.
Other robots included in the event is an eerily life-like machine called Jia Jia. Dubbed as the "robot goddess," the humanoid robot has been taught deep learning abilities comprising of human language understanding and identifying facial expressions. Jia Jia was one of the most popular bots in the conference pulling in crowds of attendees wanting to witness her abilities.
Life-Like Robot Answers Questions Of Attendees At The World Robot Conference 2016
The robot goddess was created by the researchers over at the University of Science and Technology of China, the Daily Mail reported. They programmed it so that Jia Jia is capable of human-machine interaction, as well as autonomous position navigation and services based on the latest cloud technology. During the conference, she interacted with event-goers and responded to people when asked a question.
"What kind of skills do you have?" an attendee asked. In response, Jia Jia said that it can speak with a person; can recognize faces. It's able to classify gender and age, as well as identify certain facial expressions of those standing before it. Impressive as this may be, the robot's developers admitted that the programming was quite the challenge, but seeing as to how their creation performed during the world robot conference 2016 event it's safe to say that they did a pretty great job in conquering that challenge.
