Los Angeles, CA – September 12, 2017 — Hanson Robotics Founder/CEO Dr. David Hanson will soon appear on the award-winning, global TV show, Modern Living with kathy ireland®. The segment’s topic is the company’s robots that capture and enchant the human imagination.

Hanson Robotics is a company that creates amazingly expressive and lifelike robots. These robots build trusted and engaging relationships with people through conversation and even teach, serve and entertain. In time, they will come to truly understand and care about humans. Hanson Robotics aims to create a better future for humanity by infusing artificial intelligence with kindness and empathy, cultivated through meaningful interactions between robots and the individuals whose lives they touch. Hanson Robotics was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Hong Kong.

Dr. Hanson explains how Hanson Robotics’ robots have such a realistic look and feel. He says, “We have skin material that simulates facial expressions. This was part of my graduate work, and we brought it to mass manufacturing. Behind the skin, we have a bunch of motors that simulate the muscle actions of the human face and neck muscles. We then give the robots the power to interact with people, so they can process the human face, understand the situational context, see human facial expressions and then respond to that.”

JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Modern Living with kathy ireland®, is thrilled to feature Hanson Robotics. He says, “Robots have been around for awhile now, but not like this. Hanson Robotics has brought the idea of robots to a whole new level. Their robots are endowed with remarkable expressiveness and interactivity and can even show different facial expressions, allowing them to engage with people on deep emotional levels. The future is here! We’re so happy to feature Hanson Robotics on our show.”
