Talk title: Off-loaded Mind and Communication Musicality

Abstract: I have been developing a human-like android, ALTER, since 2016. I believe that there are three elements that make an android behave like a human. The first is appearance. This prepares them to be treated as people. The second is autonomy. Autonomy means that the android does not need any external input to decide what to do. It is the processes that go on internally that give androids their autonomy. The third element is communication. Imitating others is the ignition point of communication in early childhood.
