Emotech’s Olly the robot – with personality!

We’re very excited about the latest innovative collaboration made possible by The Data Lab: Emotech’s Olly the robot.

The Data Lab funded 50% of the project research costs, enabling the tie-up with Heriot-Watt University’s Interaction Lab and Natural Language Processing (NLP) Lab, led by Dr Liu and Dr Rieser.
