|DUBAI cheap air vapormax 97 , Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- China's Hanson Robotics, producer of the celebrity humanoid robot Sophia, is partnering with United Arab Emirates' (UAE's) biggest telecom firm Etisalat for future sales of its robots in the Middle East, the company said Monday.
With Etisalat's help, Hanson Robotics, based in Hong Kong cheap air max 97 womens , is showcasing Sophia at the ongoing IT fair Gitex Technology Week, which has gathered 4,100 exhibitors from over 70 countries including China.
Jeanne Lim, Hanson Robotics' chief marketing officer, hailed Etisalat for its interest in artificial intelligence, while adding that Hanson's partnership with Etisalat is "still in a test phase."
At Etisalat's stand at Gitex cheap air max 97 mens , visitors can talk to Sophia and ask her questions in order to test her humanoid capabilities.
Lim told Xinhua that the use of Sophia in the education and business fields converges with Etisalat's support for digital educational strategy implemented in the UAE.
"Sophia can be used as an educational toy," Lim said, stressing that Sophia fits into the UAE's digital educational strategy.
Sophia, designed by David Hanson, a former Walt Disney Imagineering employee and founder of Hanson Robotics, looks like Hollywood legendary actress Audrey Hepburn.
It is a lifelike social robot that can establish relationship with people through 60 programmed facial expressions.
"Sophia is a media personality cheap nike react element 87 womens , she was part of a movie and on a TV show," Lim said.
However, Lim said that more work needs to be done for the commercialization of Sophia, and a proper plan is needed to be designed by Etisalat to put the robot into commercial use at the shopping malls, schools and hospitals in the UAE.
So far, Hanson has only launched the consumer robot Professor Einstein for private homes in the United States cheap nike react element 87 mens black , as it has not yet started large-scale manufacturing of the robots.
TOKYO, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Japan's central bank chief Haruhiko Kuroda said Thursday that the recent surge in the price of bitcoin is "abnormal."
The Bank of Japan Governor made the remarks at a press conference following the central bank's two-day policy meeting.
In Japan, the price of the bitcoin topped 2 million yen (17,640 U.S. dollars) earlier this month on a major exchange, registering a 20-fold jump since January when it changed hands around 100,000 yen (882 U.S. dollars).
"It's not my place to say cheap nike react element 87 mens , but if you look at the charts, it's clear that the jump (in prices) is abnormal," Kuroda reportedly said.
He also said that bitcoin, unlike conventional currencies, is not controlled by a central bank or government and "does not have the same function as currency as a means of payment or settlement."
Bitcoin is "being traded for investment or speculative purposes," he said.
Bitcoin is a major digital currency without ties to any bank or government. It is underpinned by blockchain technology www.cheapreactelement87.com , a digital ledger system that uses cryptography.
Credibility of the virtual currency has been a concern to many people, especially after the sudden shutdown in 2014 of the Japanese bitcoin exchange MtGox Co..
The virtual currency has also raised controversy over its potential use for money laundering and capital flight, as it allows users to spend and transfer money anonymously.
Police said last month that 170 cases of suspected money laundering linked to cryptocurrency included bitcoin were reported in Japan from April through September.
Japan revised its law last year to regulate the dealings of virtual currencies including bitcoin, so as to prevent their use in terrorism or money laundering and protect the interests of the owners.
According to the revised law, virtual currencies could be used for settlement. But exchanges dealing virtual currencies shall be registered with the Financial Services Agency.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that Washington is willing to begin talks with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) "without pre-condition."
"We're ready to have the first meeting without precondition cheap nike react element 87 sail ," Tillerson told a policy forum at the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank.
"Let's just meet," the top U.S. diplomat told an audience of around 300. "We can talk about the weather if you want. We can talk about whether it's going to be a square table or a round table."
"Can we at least sit down and see each other face to face, and then we can begin to lay out a map, a road map, of what we might be willing to work towards cheap nike react element 87 ," Tillerson said, changing the tough tone long being held by the Trump administration and suggesting some initial contacts to set the ground rules for further negotiations.
Tillerson noted that a dialogue is possible whenever Pyongyang is ready.
Tillerson's remarks came two weeks after the DPRK successfully test-fired a newly developed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, drawing strong condemnation from the international community.
Washington and Pyongyang has been exchanging harsh rhetoric in the past months, with U.S. President Donald Trump threatening to rain down "fire and fury" and "totally destroy" the country.
Before Tillerson's speech, the United States has insisted that negotiations should be based on the DPRK's nuclear disarmament.
