Programmer Trung Le garnered international attention after UK tabloids reported on Aiko as his “robot girlfriend.” The 33 year old Trung said he has racked up $21,000 in credit card bills and spent over a year work on his project. Both The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Star visited also visited Trung, who told the Star the five foot tall robot with the hourglass figure was “not really my girlfriend.””Aiko’s a robot who can do a lot of things, and hopefully more soon,” he told the Star.As to what exactly Aiko can do is up for interpretation, depending on how convincing you find Trung’s videos of her interactions, though he told the Star the robot can can speak about 13,000 sentences in Japanese and English.I’m a bit skeptical myself, but not being an expert in the field I asked UBC professor Alan Mackworth, who holds a Canada Research Chair in Artificial Intelligence and is the past president of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, about what he thought.After checking out the links, Mackworth said everything Trung claims Aiko can do is “do able within the state of the art.””What is not clear without testing the robot is its flexibility to cope with a wide range of visual and spoken inputs.

Yet again, the US government is about to exceed its legal debt limit of $16.7 trillion dollars (that’s $16,699,421,095,673) without getting a grip on its irresponsible overspending. The legal limit has been raised a dozen or so times already this century. But elementary maths says no country can continue to spend more than their income indefinitely.
I been a registered nurse about 5 years. I work in Oncology now but my first job was on a Vent unit. This is a unit where they keep people who are downgraded from ICU or CCU on a ventilator usually after they are stable but there isn a lot being considered anymore about their complete recovery, OR chronically ill people kept on a ventilator long term.
