A new version of the Forpheus table tennis robot demonstrat­es its skills during a public event at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Koto Ward, Tokyo. The robot played against a two-person team in late July at the museum, also known as Miraikan. The previous model of the robot, developed by electronic­s device maker Omron Corp., was only able to play against a single opponent, but the new version can handle a pair of opponents because the robot’s artificial intelligen­ce can read such factors as a person’s facial expression­s, heart rates and bodily movements.
