Swedish startup raises $2.5 million for its socially intelligent robot
Furhat Robotics has raised $2.5 million for its socially intelligent robots which mimic human behaviour and display human-like social behaviour. The robotic system mimics human gesture and intonation and creates expressions using computer animation and projection. The technology can be potentially used for a number of ways and will have smartphone interaction and medical implications for the elderly and those with certain medical conditions. The star up has raised the sum in seed funding from Balderton Capital and LocalGlobe.
