Notice how the robot has a much nicer accent than the Stupid Americans he talks with. It always astounds me that Americans are not given speech therapy to eliminate their unpleasant accents.

If this video was seriously intended by Hansonrobotics.com to give us the impression that they have finally developed genuine A.I. with complex emotional content, then it would be global front page news. It isn't and they are engaged in a fraud. This robot is NOT having a meaningful dialogue with those around it, but I am impressed with the way its creators have managed to create facial expressions that roughly match its side of this pre-recorded and poorly rehearsed conversation - hence the timing problems at 0.27, 0.50 and 1.15. I would love to see the look on its new owners faces when they switch it on for the first time after handing over a stack of cash and for it simply to repeat what we just heard here...haha, priceless. This novelty wouldn't look out of place in an educational / science / visitor centre context. "Hello and welcome tto the the the Cyber-Zone, my name is JJim and I'm your host for tttoday's presentation...blah blah blah" An April fool prank possibly...?
