How many sensors are in your head?

Junko, I like how many sensors are in the robot's head. Could be a selling point in the future: my robot has more sensors in its head than your robot does.  Good story -- thanks.

What information do we give out to Pepper and how is it kept safe?

Left unsaid about the Pepper announcement is how SoftBank will keep the privacy safe, once the humanoid starts collecting a lot of data about you and your family members. I am sure they are mindful of it, and yet, we do recognize for the whole point of SoftBank doing this is "data collection."

Junko, your use of 'killer app' regarding robots caught my attention.  -Tom  PS: Mothers are like that the world over.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
