Kirobo, The Humanoid Robot Does First Space Chat“A robot does the first space chat ever” yes, you did heard right. Kirobo, the humanoid robot which has been sent to space in August of this year has recently carried out the mission successfully at the International Space Station. Thanks to the footage which released on Thursday, the first humanoid robot does a series of conversation with the Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, a commander of the International Space Centre. Well, conversation in the sense a small talk with the commander. The conversations are means for series of experiments which aims at testing the robot’s autonomous conversation function.

Kirobo will not voice out pre-programmed phrases which will respond to specific questions, but instead it has been programmed in such a way that it will process the question asked, and in turn select the kind of words from its vocabulary to reply an answer. Though there will be some awkward pauses, the conversation will be coherent. Captain Wakata did share the first experiments in which he asked the Kirobo that how he felt about being in zero-gravity environment and in return Kirobo replied,”I’m used to it now, no problem at all”. Stay tuned for more updates.
