Hanson Robotics, which has a signature under many robots such as the humanoid robot Sophia, announced that it will produce thousands of robots by half of 2021, and these robots will be used in many different industries, from the hospital to the airport.
With the spread of the covid-19 epidemic, the need for artificial intelligence and especially robots began to grow. Hanson Robotics has announced that they will go into mass production for thousands of robots, including Sophia, the humanoid robot they have developed.
The new robots will start serving in many areas, from health to the retail sector. Sophia’s creator, David Hanson, believes robots can help build one-on-one relationships with customers in many areas, including in industries such as airports.
Hanson Robotics is not the first company to launch a robot as part of the fight against the epidemic. In recent months, a company called SoftBanks Robotics has begun using a robot called Pepper, which can detect people who don’t wear masks. A Chinese-based company called CloudMinds helped establish a field hospital where robots were involved.
