可利欧去上学 Qrio Goes to School

Qrio, a human-like robot developed by Sony, has been sent to nursery school at University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Since March, the 6.8-kilogram and 58-centimeter tall robot has spent about an hour each day playing with a group of very young kids at the UCSD Early Childhood Education Center. Researchers are watching closely to see how the kids react.

索尼研发的外形像人一样的机器人可利欧已经被送到加州大学圣迭戈分校(UCSD)的托儿所里。从三月开始,这款重6.8公斤、高58厘米的机器人每天都花大约一小时和 UCSD 幼教中心一群非常幼小的儿童一起玩。研究人员密切观察孩童们的反应。

At first they were a little bit scared, but now they sing and dance with Qrio and help him when he falls down. “The children think of Qrio as a feeble younger brother,” Sony researcher Fumihide Tanaka said.

起初这些孩子有点害怕,但现在他们会和可利欧一起唱歌跳舞,还会在他跌倒时扶他起来。索尼研究员田中文英说:“孩子们把可利欧当做一个弱小的弟弟。”

The kids are starting to spend less time with the robot, however. “The next step is to improve the interactivity of the dance and figure out how to re-attract the attention of the children,” said Tanaka.

但是现在孩子们开始花比较少的时间跟机器人玩了。田中说:“下一步是要改进舞蹈的交互性,想办法重新吸引孩子们的注意。”

One thing nobody gets tired of is shutdown time. Queues form to cover Qrio with a blanket and wish him “night-night”. The lead classroom teacher, Lydia Morrison, said having Qrio around was “an enriching experience for both the children and the teachers”.

每个孩子都乐此不疲的一件事是关机时间。他们会排起长龙替可利欧盖上毯子,并祝他“晚安”。班导师莉迪娅·莫里森表示,拥有可利欧的陪伴是“一个令孩子与老师都感到很充实的经历”。

In another role as Sony's corporate ambassador, Qrio is often spotted at trade shows and sporting events. The robot is purely a research project at this point. Sony has no plans to make it commercially available.

可利欧另外还扮演索尼公司大使的角色,经常在商展和运动会上露脸。现阶段这款机器人纯粹是研究计划性质的。索尼并无打算要上市发售。
