Why Do Humanoid Robot Faces Creep Us Out So Much?
News   Mar 23, 2021

Researchers from at Osaka University used motion capture cameras to compare the expressions of android and human faces. They found that the mechanical facial movements of the robots, especially in the upper regions, did not fully reproduce the curved flow lines seen in the faces of actual people. This research may lead to more lifelike and expressive artificial faces.
