Summary: Nadine, developed by scientist in Singapore, is a real virtual human, a human-like robot.
Scientists at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore have unleashed their latest creation on the university’s campus: the world’s most human-like robot.
Nadine, as the robot is called, has soft skin and medium brunette hair just like her creator, Professor Nadia Thalmann. But more than her looks, the most impressive thing about Nadine is what she does: make eye contact, smile, meet and greet guests, shake hands, and even recognise past visitors and engage in conversation with them based on previous exchanges.
Unlike previous generations of robots, Nadine has an individual personality, with moods that change depending on the topic.
