The artificial intelligence-powered robot, named Eva, can emulate human facial expressions to an extent not seen before in the field of robotics.

While several humanoid robots have been developed in the last two decades, emotional intelligence in robots has been largely limited. Scientists who were part of this study said facially expressive humanoid robots are expensive and inaccessible to most people, thus limiting the number of researchers in this field.
