At present, industrial robotics focused more on motion control and vision; whereas Humanoid Service Robotics (HSRs) are increasingly being investigated among researchers’ and practitioners’ field of speech interactions. The problematic and quality of human-robot interaction (HRI) has become one of the hot potatoes concerned in academia. This paper proposes a novel interactive framework suitable for HSRs. The proposed framework is grounded on the novel integration of Trevarthen [24 Companionship Theory and neural image generation algorithm in computer vision. By integrating the image-to-natural interactivities generation, and communicate with the environment to better interact with the stakeholder, thereby changing from interaction to a bionic-companionship. In addition, the article also reviews the research of neural image generation algorithms and summarizes the application cases of the algorithm structure in the field of robotics from a critical perspective. We believe that the new interactive bionic-companionship framework can enable HSRs to further develop towards robot companions.
