Ibn Sina Is First Android to Fly Emirates Airlines
We recently heard from Dr. Nikolaos Mavridis who caught us up on news of Ibn Sina (aka Avicenna) and FaceBots, the Interactive Robots and Media Lab's projects. They have certainly been busy. Ibn Sina went on display at the GITEX in the Middle East amd IEHE in Saudi Arabia. It turns out that the Arabic-speaking bot also became the first android to fly first class on Emirates Airlines. IRML's FaceBots were demoed at the Techriti in India. Check out their site to read about their other recent activities.
(Thanks, Dr. Mavridis)
