Bina48 is a humanoid robot, consisting of a bust-like head and shoulders mounted on a frame, developed by Hanson Robots and released in 2010. Bina48 was modeled after Bina Aspen, co-founder of the Terasem Movement Foundation, by compiling all of Aspen’s memories, feelings, and beliefs. Bina48, alongside Bruce Duncan, Director of the Terasem Movement Foundation, will engage the audience in discussion and Q&A.
