Advanced robot Bina48 to visit Ilsley Library
MIDDLEBURY — Addison County Retired Educators will host Bruce Duncan and Bina48 at the Ilsley Library on Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 10:30 a.m. Bruce is responsible for the ongoing development of Bina48, the world’s first advanced humanoid robot based on the “mindfile” information of a real person.
Bina48 is designed to be a social being that represents a mix of memories, values, and beliefs from the original Bina along with new experiences gained through interaction with others. She has been featured in the New York Times Science Section, “GQ Magazine,” NPR and “National Geographic Magazine” since she came to life in 2010.
This event is free and open to the public.
