AI Robotic cat to assist the elderly

Engineers at Brown University are developing an AI to be installed in a Hasbro toy that is currently available as a companion robot.

Imagine the possibilities as well as using this bot as a digital assistant, it could be an excellent early warning system for the owner and authorities for healthcare and security!

AI could soon be running call centres

Google is developing their Duplex AI to be on the receiving end of the line in a call centre. But they’re not alone. Amazon, IBM, Microsoft and Cisco are also looking into this.

Do they take strong accents into consideration? I’m picturing a story told by stand up Kevin Bridges about trying to order cinema tickets using an automated phone system with a thick Glaswegian accent… hahaha
