In today’s episode, we discuss specialty voice assistants and what Intuition Robotics has learned from its extensive beta testing of voice assistant solutions for elder adults that live on their own. Some topics include user experience involving the body language of a stationary robot, the importance of visuals, and device-initiated interactions. We also discuss the surprising findings about the use of the company’s smart speaker during COVID. Toward the end of the interview, we also discuss voice assistants in automative.
Intuition Robotics was formed in 2015 to reimagine the relationship between humans and machines. The company’s first product, ElliQ, is an interactive smart speaker for elder adults. It can respond to requests or proactively engage with users, has a screen, and can move to offer the robotic equivalent of body language. The solution is in beta testing today and the company has been collecting user data before a commercial launch. Toyota also recently tapped Intuition Robotics to provide its Q voice assistant designed for automotive use cases. The company recently closed a $36 million funding round and has raised $58 million to date.
