ICP2016 Opening Lecture (July 24, 2016):
Adaptation to Teleoperate Robots
by Prof. Hiroshi ISHIGURO

Professor, Graduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University
Visiting Director, Hiroshi Ishiguro Laboratories, Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR)

Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro is the director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory in the Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University, Japan. He is working on the robotics of androids, a humanoid robot with a lifelike appearance and visible facial movements. He concentrated on making a robot to be as similar as possible to a live human being, and in July 2005 unveiled a female-looking android named Repliee Q1Expo. He then made an android that resembles himself, called Geminoid HI-1. His research engages in the development of symbiotic human-robot interaction, and his goal is to develop autonomous robots that can communicate with multiple humans via various communicative means.
