A virtual robot who looks like a seven-year-old child officially received the status of a resident of one of the central municipalities in Tokyo today.
The guy wears the name Mirai, which means a future, it still does not exist in reality, but artificial intelligence allows text to talk to people through the LINE applicat.
The Shibuya’s modern district has decided a robot named Shibuya Mirai to get a real identity, the first time in Japan, and probably in the world.
In addition to correspondence, Mirai likes to paint and, in an interesting way, exchange seals with the interlocutors who send him.
One of the municipal officials says that Miari can help the municipality become more familiar and enable residents to communicate with the local self-government through it.
