We will present the robot hardware capabilities as well as first examples of natural human-machine dialogs in Czech, which are being developed by the team at FI MU. The robot is designed for social interactions with people and it is equipped with an extensive API set to detect faces, mood, or age and to react to their values. We will also sketch our plans to use the robot in both students works and in research with applications oriented to human-machine cooperation.
