Kansei shows disgust when you mention President Bush, and he’s not even human

I found this funny. Sorry if you are a Bush supporter.

Kansei is a Japanese robot created at Meiji University’s School of Science and Technology. The humanoid robot has 36 expressions based on a self updating list of 500,000 keywords…. the English keywords then trigger the most appropriate facial expression, which ranges from happiness to sadness, anger and fear.

Kansei frowns when he hears the word ‘bomb’, smiles at ‘sushi’ and looks scared and disgusted when someone says ‘president’ and “Bush”

    Who doesn’t?

    Are you sure the robot isn’t just afraid of the other kind of “bush”? I can’t help it, I had to throw that in there. Now, the word “President” scares me in all contexts, regardless if it’s the president of a country or a company.
