snip>this exhibition is positioned as an opportunity to consider the robot on the assumption of intercommunication of information between human beings and the robot, not stopping at one-way communication from human beings.In Japan, as is symbolized in the worlds of famous animations, people have traditionally feltrobots familiar as their neighbors who, having their own will and feelings, can exchange words with them or cause their children’s dreams to come true. Here, robots have been thought of as something like their friends that have the same eyes as their own, without being felt as anything pitted against human beings.<snip

    Shouldn’t that be, ‘reading the score with its eye’ ?!

    I need one of these to talk to my wife, so I can get on with other things.
