Join the Friends of Furhat network and receive the latest updates, releases, and news on Furhat developments and social impact.


Furhat Robotics revolutionizes how people interact with information around them. Our vision is to build machines with social intelligence. Our forerunner innovation is the Furhat robot. No one who’s seen Furhat is left untouched.

The promise behind the development of Furhat is driven by a vision to build an interface that is psychologically closer to the human. Supported by deep scientific evidence, such interface would impact and engage the human in ways that are fundamentally different from any other computer interface. A machine that operates under human terms would open up tasks for robots that have only been assigned to humans.

The Furhat robot is an award-winning robot head that is based on years of research and development on social artificial intelligence. Furhat “body” is superior in that it is designed using computer animation with unique expressiveness and customizability, putting special focus on the personality and character of the robot. Furhat’s “brain” is powered by a state-of-the-art conversational intelligence platform which is used to build highly sophisticated and socially-aware spoken interactions with Furhat.

Furhat today is available as a development platform for researchers, developers, and early adopter partners, including some of the world’s most creative companies, and advanced research labs. Read more on some of the early markets Furhat is being developed to disrupt, and join us in building the first revolutionary applications in social robotics.

“Furhat is a promising stab at making mechanical creatures and computer interfaces appear and act more like humans”


“Furhat gradually learn more and more information and he learns how to interact with humans in a semi-human way”


“Furhat is a robotic platform that combines natural voice and gesture to create a more social, human experience”


“Furhat is about understanding how to make machines come to life and re-imagining the role computers can play with humans.”
