FEELIX GROWING (Feel, Interact, eXpress: a Global approach to development with Interdisciplinary Grounding) project’s aim was of developing robots that are capable of identifying different emotions based on facial expressions, in 2008. Now, that same project has announced the completion of its first prototype robots that are not only capable of developing their own emotions as they interact with the human, but they can also express those emotions.



The robots possess artificial neural networks and a sophisticated array of cameras and sensors which could allow a robot to monitor the emotional status of its human companions, and tailor its behavior accordingly. Depending on what responses it has received from different people, it could also take unique approaches to individuals, in an effort to minimize fear or discomfort. As well as being better suited to tasks where monitoring the well-being of humans is critical (for example, babysitting or nursing), the emotion-sensable robots could also be more easily accepted by people in general.
