It's a great robot. Better than others. It's just need some upgrades and need to show feelings and explore like cozmo by its own. That the main thing all people wants. And make it better in speaking British and can pepper be renamed?

Pepper needs to climb steps-as too many steps exist everywhere.

The thing I see most are people treating the robots beyond their current capabilities, as if it doesn't need time to process! Saying multiple things to it like 'Hello, I'm Robert, what's your name?' all in one big string is going to stack up and get confusing... also complicated and strange sentence structures. It's like when I see native people talking to language learners in the same way, just... slow it down, and simplify!

pepper is very talkative in japanese! There's one in the hospital near our house and she can answer any questions thrown at it! He even makes jokes and plays with kids!
Val O'Brien (6 months ago)
Kitsune Ken That's pathetic ! And if you can't see why - then so must you be too !

I don't blame pepper for not understanding British. When I got my first job in an international company, I didn't understand half of what my boss said to me in British.  I was too embarrassed to say so I asked my colleague in the next cubicle to tell me what he said!  lol
Val O'Brien (6 months ago)
rasmasyean " Pepper ". is a collection of digital elements. It is NOT a person, and never will be. It's pathetic to see a human being addressing a piece of machinery as if it were a living being. Don't you think it's a sad reflection that there are living ceatures becoming extinct every day, and we should be doing something to address this issue but instead are more interested in wasting time talking to a bit of metal as if it were a creature of flesh and blood with feelings.?

I can't understand what you're saying either - "British" is a nationality not a language/dialect/accent. Britain contains four countries with vastly contrasting accents. Its about the same as saying "I don't understand European"......Anyway, if you find that tough try going to New Zealand or the USA.
me da miedo

Him?! It is a "SHE" we all call our boats or valueble belongings she...pepper is not an exception
Angie2343 (1 year ago)
That's what I'm gonna refer to my Pepper robot as, as well.
Dark Fox (1 year ago)
CP3_P0n3 that's pretty stupid. It doesn't have a gender, it's a robot, you can call it a he or a she it really doesn't matter. Unless the robot specifically tells you to call it a certain gender you can say whichever and it's fine
Tanner (1 year ago)
+CP3_P0n3 I think the vision they're going for is pepper to be a little boy. That's why the voice is so high. They want Pepper to read as a small adorable boy. I do see what you're saying, though.
CP3_P0n3 (1 year ago)
but that only makes sense in Japan though, in other parts of the world that voice and the name 'Pepper' sounded more like female. I know the company IS from Japan but the guy int the video calling her a 'he' just sounds weird to me. Pepper is too cute to be a boy
Tanner (1 year ago)
CP3_P0n3 Soft Bank Robotics, the company which created Pepper, refer to it as a he. I'm not sure why they gender it at all, it's probably hard for people to bond with things they call "it". Nevertheless, the company does want pepper to be referred to as a He.

3:22 "Arschloch" ? (german word) haha
Angie2343 (1 year ago)
Stop calling Pepper a he!
Angie2343 (11 months ago)
When I get a Pepper, I will identify it as a girl. :)
a1r9a9shi99 (1 year ago)
Angie2343: I see your point, Pepper doesn't really have a gender, it is whatever gender you want it to be. I think the reason why a lot of people called Pepper a "he" is because if you hear Pepper speak in Japanese, it uses masculine pronouns to refer to itself. Perhaps Pepper identifies as a male robot if there's a such thing?
Dark Fox (1 year ago)
Angie2343 what's wrong with calling it a he? It obviously doesn't have a gender, so you can call it whichever one and it doesn't matter
walkin dude (1 year ago)
right? it's obviously an it. also, don't ask it how things taste. that's like asking a blind man what things look like.
