Kristiina with Nao robot at home


The world’s first Sami-speaking robot talking about the situation of Sami languages in Finland.

SamiTalk is a robot application that tells information from Sami Wikipedia in the North Sami language. The prototype was developed at University of Helsinki for the DigiSami project of the Academy of Finland.

Sami-speaking robot talks about Sami languages (YouTube).

The demo video was shown at the IWSDS 2016 International Workshop on Spoken Dialogue Systems which I organised in Saariselkä, Finland.
