Cozmo The Robot: A Small AI System With Complex Decision Making

How Anki’s Cozmo Is the Ambassador for Robot-Human Relations (+Video)

Chris Davies | June 27, 2016

Anki has come a long way from its WWDC 2013 demo of iPhone-controlled race cars, but today's big reveal of Cozmo, it's AI-blessed robot, is a lot more than just a toy. Scurrying around on its tank tracks, the palm-scale gadget looks like a plaything but is in reality a clever sleight of hand to bring some of the most complex parts of modern computing right into the home.
[...] Anki will have an SDK for just about every aspect of Cozmo's abilities, and there'll be an immediate payout to getting to grips with each component, since it'll be reflected not just on a computer screen but on the desk in front of you.

[Abstract: We examine how susceptible jobs are to computerisation. To assess this, we begin by implementing a novel methodology to estimate the probability of computerisation for 702 detailed occupations, using a Gaussian process classifier. Based on these estimates, we examine expected impacts of future computerisation on US labour market outcomes, with the primary objective of analysing the number of jobs at risk and the relationship between an occupation’s probability of computerisation, wages and educational attainment. According to our estimates, about 47 percent of total US employment is at risk. We further provide evidence that wages and educational attainment exhibit a strong negative relationship with an occupation’s probability of computerisation.]>
