Japanese robot Pepper enrolls at high school


Japan have unveiled the world’s first high school robot named Pepper. The robot is disturbingly considered legally enrolled at a Japanese high school, and marks the first time a humanoid robot will study alongside human students.

In a bizarre interview, Pepper told newspaper TASS, “I never thought that I would be accepted into a human school,” and promised to “try my best”. reports:

Pepper comes to the school with an impressive array of language skills, speaking both Japanese and English. He will mostly take part in English classes, though the school has told Pepper than he can also visit other classes and activities.

Teachers believe learning alongside Pepper will be a positive experience for students, encouraging their desire to learn new information.

Developed by Japanese corporation SoftBank Robotics, Pepper is intended to be primarily used for customer service in banks and shops. In March, the Pepper robot’s customer service etiquette was put to the test at a cellphone store in Tokyo’s Omotesando shopping district.

However, his abilities go far beyond retail and customer service.
