Remember when we shared with you the article of Stephen Hawking and his insight on Artificial Intelligence? Well, he definitely was right! AI designs are becoming more prevalent every moment, and today we get to introduce the newest member of AI design; JIBO. Designed by M.I.T’s Cynthia Breazeal, JIBO is a “companion robot” that hopes to “humanize technology”. JIBO’s features are vast, ranging from interactive programming to taking pictures. JIBO is pretty much the closest humanized robot the world has ever seen. While some people have already pre-ordered this innovative gadget, others are a little more apprehensible. Due to the current demand of information and personal data, some fear JIBO will be anything and everything a hacker will need to gain more personal access to one’s home. While we haven’t figured out if that is a possible issue yet, we at P.O.S. agree that JIBO is indeed revolutionary. Check out the video below and let us know if you feel the same!
