The creaters of JIBO want to humanize technology. JIBO is a cute robot that is said to be friendly, helpful, and intelligent. It's able to listen and respond, alert you, take pictures & video, entertain you, educate you, and more -- all with artificial intelligence algorithms. The robot platform allows it to learn and grow...becoming more intelligent. Am I the only one who thinks this is terrifying? Why would I pay $500 + to have my privacy taken away? Yeah JIBO might look cute like EVE from the Wall-E film, but I would not put this in my home. *shudder* What do you think? Do you think humanizing technology is okay? Will computers and humans ever be equals? (Source:
@MikeLMiller so cool!!
I have no definite plans yet. I'm still considering the possibilities and am unsure of what Skills the Jibo will come pre-installed with. There is going to be a Jibo Store for downloading new Skills (Apps) and I am hoping to develop some of these. Any ideas?
@MikeLMiller That is so cool! what are you hoping to do with it?
I ordered one of these with the developer's kit. Q3 2015 can't get here soon enough for me!
@MikeLMiller Awesome! I never thought I'd come across a developer who bought this. It would be interesting to see how this bot would work with other devices in the house...maybe even security?
