Children, customer-friendly robots
The number of robots which are children friendly at home and customer friendly in airports, hotels and restaurants is on the rise. Furthermore, these robots are thinking in more detail and gaining new talents with the advancement of artificial intelligence, while different sensors have become electronic products purchased by regular customers.
Robots are now not perceived as the life-threatening creatures we see on the films. There are robots that cost less than $100 and are able to communicate with children, and robots that cost thousands of dollars which show passengers their gate and wave at them to say goodbye. Robots will soon become the hot gadgets of the techno-markets. Electronics giants, Internet giants and entrepreneurs are in a competition over robots at CES 2017. Once this phase of competition is over, the next phase is competition in the technology markets.
The primary targets of early stage robots are children. Robots are trained to offer entertainment to pre-school children and to increase their arm and eye coordination. Robots that are a little bit more talented are used to welcome guests at the restaurants, airports and hotels.
Apart from Google, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft, electronic giants such as Samsung are working on robots equipped with AI, which enables robots to gain different talents.
