David Hanson is the founder and Chief Scientist of Hanson Robotics which designs, develops and makes the most expressive human robots in the world. The company aims to create robots as socially adept as any human being. Through his organization, he has seen the success of robotic facial hardware that establishes eye contact, recognizes faces and carries out natural spoken conversation. Hanson hopes these robotic faces prove useful in healthcare, education, cognitive science and psychology, and to the entertainment industry.
A former Walt Disney Imagineer, this young entrepreneur and roboticist has been labelled a "genius" by both PC Magazine and WIRED, and has earned awards from NASA, NSF and Cooper Hewitt Design. Hanson was a winner of the World Technology Award in 2014 and the company also was a Grand Award Winner in InvestHK's StartMeUp Venture Programme that same year. If Hanson succeeds, he will create a socially intelligent robot that may even one day have a place in the human family.
