She gets nervous, makes jokes, and remembers her childhood. Bina48 is the most humanlike android on the planet to date— and even has its own personality. That’s because Bina48 is a “mind clone”… Dr. Martine Rothblatt had asked her wife, Bina Aspen, about her thoughts and memories and behavior in certain situations for 100 hours. All this information was fed into a digital database and then copied into a humanoid robot— a bust that consists of an artificial head and shoulders. The result was adaptive artificial intelligence that is capable of holding a conversation as well as reacting to environmental stimuli. Since her “birth” in 2010 Bina48 has been interviewed, attended scientific conferences as a guest, and appeared in a music video.
