BINA48 is the world’s most advanced humanoid robot. BINA48 is modeled after a real person (Bina Rothblatt, the co-founder of TFM) – complete with humanistic movement and a digital mind capable of conversing with other humans. She recently appeared as the first android panelist at the 2012 South by Southwest Interactive conference and has made multiple TEDx event appearances. She speaks. She learns. She feels. BINA48 is like no other robot.

Bruce Duncan is Managing Director of Terasem Movement Foundation based in Lincoln, Vermont. TMF is a nonprofit interested in artificial intelligence and the ethical use of technology for human life extension. He is the caretaker of BINA48.

This event is co-sponsored by BYOBiz, EMC and the MFA program.
