This picture taken on June 28, 2014 shows Japanese mobile communication giant Softbank’s humanoid robot “Pepper” (R) chatting to a woman at a high-tech gadgets exhibition in Tokyo. Mobile carrier Softbank, which created the robot, says Pepper can understand 70 to 80 percent of spontaneous conversations — although it also answers from a set number of pre-programmed responses.
