Human-like robot with emotions, personality and mood unveiled in Singapore

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have unveiled "Nadine," a socially intelligent, human-looking robot complete with "her own personality, mood and emotions," according to a university news release.
The humanoid "receptionist" was presented at a new media showcase Tuesday at NTU, where her human creator, professor Nadia Thalmann, predicted that "physical social robots such as Nadine are poised to become more visible in offices and homes in future."
Nadine was created to be a doppelganger of Thalmann, according to NTU's news release, which said the "humanoid" has "soft skin and flowing brunette hair. She smiles when greeting you, looks at you in the eye when talking, and can also shake hands with you."
 
The robot "can be happy or sad, depending on the conversation" and she "also has a good memory" with the ability to recognize people she's met and remember what those people have said before, NTU said. The university added that "Nadine is powered by intelligent software similar to Apple’s Siri or Microsoft’s Cortana."
 
Watch the robot interact in the video below:

Rubbish!! Creating robots to act as receptionist when there are real human beings outthere clamouring for such jobs to put food on their table but can't fine one is Just absurd. Haba! What next? 'Robotphiles' will now emerge and start asking for their rights to marry Nadine. The world has lost it! Funds which would have been used to improve human lives are being wasted on such senseless projects.

How is this a senseless project? Don't just rant without much forethought. Technology ultimately seeks to make life better, yes it may lead to loss of jobs. So we should remain in the dark ages, as Luddites because of Jobs? When the plane was invented and cross Atlantic commecial flights began, I'm sure your "smart" logic would have had you clamouring for the abolition of such a "senseless project" because many able bodied people would lose their jobs as sailors of hitherto used ships.

How's this going to improve human lives? When you think u are 'enlightened 'enough to accept every nonsense dev't in the name of technology, you should start by advancing evidence how this is going to improve human lives.
