JIBO, World’s First Family Robot

Cynthia Breazeal and her team combines family companion and assistant in one with JIBO, the world’s first family robot. The little robot who can has a little for everyone: serving as a storyteller for the kids, a social media notification center for the whole family, and even a hands-free photographer to take memorable pictures at parties. The artificial intelligence wonder contains algorithms to learn its owner’s custom preferences to make it adaptable to anyone’s lifestyle. JIBO’s interactive components include being able to engage in conversations, follow commands, recognize faces, and express emotions. For those who want a truly customizable robot, the Developer Edition comes with the ability to program additional skills and submit to the JIBO app store.
