As CEO of Hanson Robotics, Inc, David Hanson creates robot faces that
have been dubbed "among the most advanced in the world" by the BBC,
and inspired Science to label Hanson "head of his class" in social
robotics. After receiving a BFA from the Rhode Island School of
Design, and dabbling in AI programming at Brown, David Hanson worked
at Walt Disney Imagineering, leading development of an autonomous
walking robot and electro-active polymer (EAP) actuators. Later
Hanson went on to work toward a PhD at the University of TX at
Dallas, developing social robots affect naturalistic conversations
with face tracking AI, speech recognition, and realistic expressions
that use Hanson's patent-pending polymer materials.]
