SavvyBot - The Social Interactive Robotics platform from RoboSavvy
SavvyBot is a software platform for Humanoid Robots. It lets the robot interact with humans by utilizing the web and social networks in clever ways. In its centre is a humanoid robot that interacts with people as they pass by.
Designed for continuous operation, SavvyBot enables a robot at a reception desk of a corporate head office or at a permanent exhibition to provide a few minutes of entertainment and useful information.
The robot’s apparently intelliget behaviour is induced by the SavvyBot application using a combination of online services such as chatterbot, face recognition, business card OCR, social networks, news, business intelligence, text mining, text/video/music search etc.SavvyBot acts as a personification of a receptionist. The robot gains "personality" through SavvyBot, the costumized application. The Savvybot application is continuously scanning the robot's environment trying to recognize known and new faces that pass by.
SavvyBot runs on the NAO® humanoid robot, manufactured by Aldebaran Robotics.
The first demonstration of SavvyBot software platform was held at a recent conference where it was tailored for one-time interactions.
Due to surrounding noise, voice recognition was not possible.
Therefore a keyboard was used to enter responses to questions.
A companion computer can also be used to convey additional media such as textual hints and video clips.
In this demo, the SavvyBot application tries to recognize people that pass by and
offers to become their friend on Facebook.
Savvybot has a Facebook ID (“SavvyBot”) and likes to take a
picture together with new friends to post them on Facebook's
timeline. Once SavvyBot is your friend on Facebook, Savvybot's algorithms
Likes and will make the robot dance to your favourite tune.
The robot, controlled by SavvyBot may also comment about where you live and say quirky things about your status and twitter feeds.
Summary of features:
|Rich H.R.I. and State of the
SavvyBot leverages state of the Art Advances in the area of H.R.I - Human Robot Interaction. Combining areas of psychology, computer science and robotics, H.R.I is a growing area of interest bringing us the robots that Science Fiction has taught us to expect.
SavvyBot's advanced architecture is designed to autonomously find and present interesting information for the person it's interacting with using multiple resources including Social networks, Business Card OCR, Text mining and others.
||Engaging New Visitors: Unique
and Personalized Interaction for every person
SavvyBot is continuously operating and scanning his environment for new or known faces.
When a new visitor is found, SavvyBot is programmed to grab the person's attention and to interact and find out more about one's interests.
One of these activities is becoming friends on Social Networks where his algorithms will quickly determine the person's Likes based on online Profile and Activities, creating a unique and personalized experience for each and every visitor.
SavvyBot keeps track of everyone it meets and of the conversations, and is capable of identifying a person and resuming interactions providing relevant news, updates and clever comments.
||Clever and Expressive
SavvyBot is a rich H.R.I. platform capable of being very expressive.
Based on the Person's profile and Customer requirements, SavvyBot can make the robot:
Other Features: SavvyBot can be customized and tailored to each user and can be adapted for use in particular events.
In the future the SavvyBot concept will be deployed in every location where today you can find a computer screen providing information. In some cases SavvyBot can pilot a robot to replace a person such as at a reception or information desk.
SavvyBot software platform is a first of its kind. It is the
result of years of expertise at RoboSavvy Labs, and is our small
contribution to the field of H.R.I.
SavvyBot is readily available from RoboSavvy today.
