This work also means that robots have the potential to become carers for our ageing population, work with humans to complete complex tasks and intervene in situations where human contact is welcome.

The ENSTA research team have developed robots that can detect emotions and change their behaviour accordingly.

So for example when they can judge a person's handshake by the stiffness of their arm and how much they move their hand.'We could show that during a female to male handshake both participants apply less pressure than for a male to male handshake', Dr Tapus told Mail Online.'The other features show that female handshakes are longer and have a lower frequency.

For each individual, one particular element is dominant and this, to a large degree, determines your essential strengths and weaknesses.

Identifying your “element” will help reveal the area of spiritual development (“”) you need to do to achieve your own greatness.

They are compliant, humble and willing to cooperate. They are good team players and are reliable and trustworthy, loyal and steadfast in their preferences and relationships. It takes on the contours of whatever vessel contains it.

It goes with the flow, literally, naturally unbound and unlimited, unrestricted.People who possess this dominant element are leaders and visionaries: They see the big picture and long-term ramifications. On the other hand, there are common character flaws generating from the element of fire: arrogance, anger, criticism and condescension toward others, and the tendency to crave power and control. It stays in one place, continuously stepped on and caught in gravity's domain.People who have more of this element tend toward laziness, sadness and despair. They have a heaviness about them, craving comfort and lack of effort.'What is also notable is that the hand of the male receiver is pointing down when he handshakes a female participant', she said.Researchers believe this could be due to the fact that female participants are on average smaller.'Giving robots a personality is the only way our relationship with artificial intelligence will survive', said Professor Adriana Tapus from ENSTA Paris Tech, Université Paris-Saclay.'Our research will help the next generation of social robots to be polite, empathetic, and maybe have their own sense of humour', she said.The team have also studied emotion recognition as part of a project to help people suffering with Autistic Syndrome Disorder (ASD).
