Robot can make facial expressions

Graduate student Lei Igarashi looks into the face of a humanoid robot named Kansei, meaning “sensibility” in Japanese, as she poses for a photograph at Meiji University’s Robot and Science Institute laboratory in Kawasaki, south of Tokyo June 4, 2007. The robot, developed by professor Junichi Takeno and a team of researchers, is able to make up to 36 kinds of facial expressions after typing a word to its software which extracts word associations from a data base of 500,000 words and calculates the level ranging between pleasantness to unpleasantness which prompts the robot to make facial expressions accordingly.(Xinhua/Reuters Photo)
