The sophisticated robot, Bina48, is modeled after Bina Aspen, the wife of Dr. Martine Rothblatt, the CEO of United Therapeutics. Bina48 is considered a “mind clone,” having absorbed more than 20 hours of the human Bina’s childhood experiences, life experiences and thoughts. Take a look at the video below of the real Bina conversing with the robot version of herself.
BINA48 is a social android that uses artificial intelligence based on the memories, attitudes, beliefs and mannerisms of a human being to interact with people. She is a part of the LifeNaut Project, an experiment in Artificial Intelligence and Cyber-Consciousness.
