On Nov 6 Furhat Robotics announced the launch of its shockingly human, AI-powered social robot capable of natural conversations and realistic facial expressions.
Stockholm-based startup Furhat Robotics has launched
a humanoid social robot that is allegedly powered by the "world's most advanced social platform". In terms of exterior design, Furhat basically looks like a smart speaker with a realistic-looking head and neck stacked on top. A face of your choice is then projected onto the head which is designed to react to you as most humans typically would.
