Are Androids Better Robots?

Roland Piquepaille writes, "The latest issue of Connection Science is dedicated to Android Science. This special issue was co-edited by Karl MacDorman, in the Human-Computer Interaction program of the School of Informatics, Indiana University, and Hiroshi Ishiguro, director of the Intelligent Robotics Lab at Osaka University. As you'll find out in "I, Robot; You, Human", these scientists have previously worked together on the development of Repliee Q1Expo, an android that was introduced at the 2005 World Exposition in Aizu, Japan. And throughout a selection of scientific papers, they try to answer this question: are androids better than mechanical-looking robots?" For more, see Roland's blog and our previous article on Hiroshi Ishiguro and his androids.


Androids better at soccer or fashon modeling?, posted 29 Dec 2006 at 02:22 UTC by MDude » (Journeyer)

"Androids are better robots at what?" would be a better question in my opinion.
