Photo Journal: Facing off with the future

Medical equipment manufacturing giant Omron Corp.'s "Forpheus" table tennis robot equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) is seen facing off in a game with an exhibitor at the annual CES exhibition in Las Vegas on Jan. 9, 2018. This year marks the first time Omron was an exhibitor at the show. Forpheus was created by using factory robot technology. The AI unit incorporated in the robot learns from the movements of the human it plays with and returns the ball in a way that makes it easy to continue a game. The company hopes that its appearance at CES will lead to collaborations with foreign companies and attract promising new employees. (Mainichi)
