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.
