+ - Humanoid robots to gain advanced social skills-> 1

Submitted by Lanxon
Lanxon (1713660) writes "A pan-European team of robotics researchers began a project this year that could see humanoid bots interact with groups of people in a realistic, anthropomorphic way for the first time, reports Wired. The "Humanoids with auditory and visual abilities in populated spaces" (HUMAVIPS) project has the ambitious goal of making humanoid bots just that bit more human by building algorithms that will enable bots to mimic what psychologists call the "cocktail party effect" — the human ability to focus attention on just one person in the midst of other people, voices and background noise."
