Emotional and Intelligent Robot : Chiti Robo

Its all about the most intelligent robots filled with emotions. Its same as the robo movie by rajnikanth a famous Bollywood star.

The next biggest challenge for robotics enthusiasts and researchers is to make robots more human-like. Taking a step forward in the direction Dr. John Murray, from the Computer Science Department in the University of Lincoln, UK has developed a new robot called ERWIN short for Emotional Robot With Intelligent Network. In his mission to study and understand how real-life like long-term relationships between robots and humans become possible, he has developed ERWIN. (How many of you of thought of the recently released movie 'HER' here?) Well, with this research, the scientists think that it will make us understand the formation of relationships by autistic children or the ones with attachment disorder.

As shared by the university in the press release, Mriganka Biswas, a PhD student at the University shares that humans have cognitive biases that make us what we are. With our errors and personality disorders, humans are characterised by a lot of things based on these cognitive biases. By introducing these in the robots, they are trying to make them more human like. This will make it possible for the robots to behave with a certain personality and help them develop relationships just as humans do. Their theory is based on the fact that since robots lack their own identifiable characteristics, they don't bond so well with humans. They are determined to change just that.
As seen in the picture above, ERWIN has the ability to express five basic emotions while interacting with a human. The research works on making the robots more sympathetic and emotive to its users. A companion robot needs to be friendly and have the ability to recognise users’ emotions and needs, and to act accordingly. By using the collated data drawn from human-robot interactions, the researchers have employed a 3D-printed humanoid robot and Keepon – a small yellow robot designed to study social development by interacting with children to achieve their goal.
