CNET First Look
Meet Cozmo, the AI robot with emotionsCozmo is a mini companion robot powered by a so-called emotion engine that develops as it learns about you. Developers will have access to an SDK to program the robot.
[MUSIC] Say hello to Cozmo, he's a robot with personality, running an artificial intelligence engine that learns and evolves the more you play with him. So Cozmo is really fully packed with technology that starts with 40 or 50 gears for motors which allow him to drive Move his arms and move his head. Cozmo uses computer vision to recognize faces, so he gets to know who's in the room. He also maps out the world around him to avoid obstacles. Powered by a so-called emotion engine, he sulks if you don't play with him for a while or gets excited when he recognizes a face and wins a game. [CROSSTALK] [NOISE] He wins. Only the motion varied depending on external inputs. As for game, hit your fastest fingers against Cozmo by tapping on these power keys as they light up in the same color When Cosmo launches in October 2016 the FDK will be opened up for developers to program him without needing a background in robotics. That even though it's just one line here, that fires up about 9,000 lines of. Codes underneath. Doing face recognition and face detection. Analyzing every single pixel in that camera image. You can get get Cosmo to count numbers, stack blocks, and many other complex robotic tasks like navigating around obstacles. The SDK will be rolled out in three phases. Firstly to hobbiest, and then expect to see it for education. Finally, third party developers will get access to make apps and additional games. [SOUND].
