Ishiguro, the scientist behind the new talking robot in Japan says people should stop expecting robots to understand them, and instead try to chime in with robotic conversations. Ishiguro’s 28-centimer (11-inch) tall button-eyed Sota, which stands for “social talker”, is programmed to mainly talk with a fellow robot, and won’t be trying too hard to understand human speech – the major, and often frustrating, drawback of companion robots.
