You’ve probably seen lots of robots here on TechCrunch. You’ve seen Atlas, the robot that can walk just like a human. You’ve seen Small Dog, the quadruped bot that can scale hills and climb stairs. But have you ever seen a robot that just makes you say “aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwww”? Meet Mira — an adorable little mini-bot built by Pixar technical director Alonso Martinez with the help of Aaron Nathan

In our last post, we presented semantic classification as a force for organization. By classifying both search keywords and ecommerce products to a shared taxonomy of concepts, businesses can improve the shopping experience by matching searches to results, regardless of ambiguities in word choice on either side of the equation.

Voice recognition technology promises to make our lives easier, letting us control everything from our phones to cars to home appliances. Just talk to our tech, and it works. As the tech becomes more advanced, there's another issue that's not as obvious as a failure to process simple requests: Voice recognition technology doesn't recognize women's voices as well as men's.

"From the most basic street and traffic signals to robots performing surgeries - artificial intelligence has penetrated almost every aspect of our daily lives.

I still remember the moment when I first unboxed the Echo and started playing around with several of its features; I was totally amazed by the experience. The second day I began looking at the development documents and the more I read the more excited I got, it became clear to me that Alexa, Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) and Alexa Voice Service (AVS) are the future.

Our research at the iVizLab is centred on the development of autonomous, anthropomorphic virtual characters. In other words, 3D representations of humans, that behave autonomously and show behaviour that is plausibly human. On the one hand we develop these characters for the application in computer games, caregiving, training and many other domains where humans interact with each other. On the

About a year ago I left Google to join Slack, and I hit the ground running. The team I joined was really excited about the platform we were planning to launch and things were super hectic. We were working with partners to implement bots, deliberating if developers will understand and buy into the concept of bots, and speaking at events to introduce this notion of the conversational office.

With 60% of families being dual working today, it can be a struggle to spend a satisfying amount of time with your kids. In a time when we’re creating self driving cars, experiencing augmented reality, and pioneering to Mars, parenting - a job most adults will take on at some point in their lives - is still incredibly difficult. We set out to fix that.

Conventional wisdom says that automation, artificial intelligence, and chatbots may do away with many human-to-human interactions and reduce opportunities for emotional connection to mere transactions. However, there’s a new chatbot that endeavors to help people to open up, get in touch with their emotions, and, if needed, seek the help of mental health professionals.

Flare uses artificial intelligence (AI) in order to bring an additional layer of home security and will send police to a residence on its own without a user’s approval. The Smart Home security system uses a software called AudioIntel that distinguishes normal noise from suspicious sounds, allowing the system to take action on its own.

If you ask, Alexa can tell you a joke and Siri will recite a haiku. Jibo will do that, and more: the new home robot can sense when you’re feeling down and try to make you smile. At 11 inches tall and about three pounds, Jibo isn’t much bigger than a vase of flowers. Cynthia Breazeal, a social robotics expert at MIT, designed the $749 bot to exhibit something approaching empathy.

The average person uses 3–5 apps per day and the big app purge is coming… You know the day, you delete all of those apps that you don’t use. In a really big way, apps have failed us and the reason is quite obvious: attention. Simply put, we humans do not have enough bandwidth to consume all of the great content available to us. We can not read all of the great books, watch all of the best movies,
