Thats awesome Adrian - as another user, I love seeing feedback like this (the bit about your son that is). Before EMO, and being involved in this community I had never thought of things like EMO being a support tool for various conditions. The first I thought about it was a few months back when a friend came to dinner and I showed her the tester unit I have. She works in an aged care facility, and the commented right away about how she could see the “old folk” really enjoying EMO as a little buddy. I’m thinking that once EMO back orders are done, that I’m going to buy a few and give them to the local aged care facility just to treat the old folk a little.
I work on frontline health and palliative care
My son has learning difficulties so it is a great tool for him
I do think some of the games are far to steep learning curve
Dance repeat and the arrow copy game is nigh on impossible as others have mentioned
They have a negative impact on integration with my son and me! As just to complicated at the start
Yeah - I agree with you that they could work on it. Keep giving the feedback as it’s very important for the team to understand how they can fine tune things. Your career will certainly give you a different view on things and I’m sure they would appreciate that input.
To think that EMO could actually be helping and benefiting others is awesome. Funnily enough it dawned on me, the care home scenario, yesterday after seeing my Mum interacting with EMO. My Mum’s in her 70’s and still, thankfully, independent. But I was watching her interact with him the other day and she really appeared to be enjoying the interaction.
Hello! Love this discussion here. Yes, I agree that would be really fantastic being able to hear our little EMO say things like the names of people’s faces or random objects in the room that he recognizes.
Would be nice to see it connected to a machine learning/self learning chatbot so you can have a conversation with him and with him talking back. Again here to make him special so every individual EMO will be different and have different discussions as we all will talk about different things and have different interests. Instead of showing “Hi” or any other information on the screen, give him a voice so he can speak and respond. Maybe once in a while talk to you or start a conversation by himself with the option to end the conversation if you do not want to talk to him. The technology is there, really not that difficult to implement it. Make EMO a truly responsive and fun product for him to be able to say your name, recall on things you discussed with him before etc. Now that will get me excited and I’m sure a lot of other people would like the communication and friendship between machine and human…
I would have loved to see that in the other robot that we don’t say the name of but everything is just quiet there too. Come on Living Ai, Give him intelligence please. Pretty pretty please
