So near and yet so lame...

Uh-huh:


First there was Adam and Eve, now there's just Eve - the sultry new face of online education developed to hold the attention of pupils and to respond to their emotions.


I'm not sure what's more troubling here - that the media (or, God help us, the researchers involved) are marketing a teacher-bot as "sultry", or that the researchers concentrated on facial recognition and seem to have forgotten to hire a good animator and voice actor...
