On 19 October, the Mayor of Dubrovnik Mato Franković met the humanoid robot, Pepper. Manufactured by the Tokyo-based SoftBank Robotics company, Robotica Pepper is the world’s first humanoid robot that can recognise faces and detect human emotions. What is more, it can conduct conversations in 15 languages.  

The City of Dubrovnik explains that the meeting between the robot and the mayor can be seen as proof of the municipality’s dedication to becoming a Smart City and utilising AI. In addition to this, it notes that it foreshadows a future in which people and artificial intelligence technology coexist.

More than 2,000 companies across the globe currently use Pepper as a business assistant.
