Meet Philos, a Robot Caregiver

Professor Kiju Lee's research group is developing a social robot, called Philos, that can interact with people while monitoring their bio-behavioral data."Philos" means "Friend" in Greek. The current version of Philos can track and recognize human faces, generate simple facial expressions and gestures, and make penguin-like sound. More entertaining features, such as online speech recognition and generation and music play, are being added. Philos has been recently featured on a local television show, WVIZ/PBS Ideastream.
