A few days back popular human robot ‘Sophia‘ was in the news. Now, taking inspiration from Sophia, a 38-year-old Ranchi man is developing India’s own humanoid robot Rashmi.
According to the developer of Rashmi, Ranjit Srivastava, the robot has functional head and body but the limbs are missing and it will be fixed shortly.
Srivastava has claimed that Rashmi can speak Bhojpuri and Marathi along with English. If the claim is true then Rashmi will be the world’s first Hindi Speaking robot.
Rashmi which is India’s first lip-syncing robot uses Artificial Intelligence, Linguistic Interpretation, Visual Data and Facial recognition system just like the robot Sophia.
According to Rajit Srivastava, he was developing this robot for the past two years and it has cost him Rs 50,000. It will take one more month to give it the complete shape of a human.
Srivastava also said, “It can talk for hours and it recognizes the person after a few meetings due to cameras fitted in its eyes.”
He believes the Humanoid robot is the need of the future generation as it can work as receptionists, helper, the friend of lonely people, even politicians.
