The company is offering $200,000 to someone for the use of their “face and voice” for the project. Applications for this started not too long ago and the company had to shut down request collection due to them getting over 20,000 applications for it.
The individual that gets chosen will be required to record over 100 hours of speech for the robot and also have a “kind and friendly” face.
