Incredibly Lifelike Android Receptionist From Singapore
“Nadine” is a product of Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, which specializes in robotics and their social interactions with humans. Nadine will serve as a receptionist for the university and according to Quartz, she’s “…like a real companion that is always with you and conscious of what is happening.” The mouth is still a little rigid and the hand movements are jerky, but the information is sound and on par with that of Cortana or Siri. She can also express emotion, although the university would not elaborate if murderous rage was in her. NTU hopes that one day Nadine will be able to perform language and etiquette not unlike C-3PO.
