Creating robotic beings you want to be with
We create empathetic robotic beings, social robots that people enjoy interacting with.
By doing so, we are making the potential of robots and artificial intelligence available to everyone – especially in social areas.
Tools are meant to expand our capabilities. However, artificial intelligence and robots can only be used by a few experts so far.
Anyone can interact with our robots. With artificial intelligence, we make our robots socially intelligent.
Communication with them is human-like and therefore very intuitive.
Our robot not only understands spoken language but also non-verbal cues like facial expressions and gestures. It establishes eye contact before they speak to you and show empathy through facial expressions and an emotional voice. It is pleasant to be with them.
As a very interdisciplinary team, we want to combine the best of the different worlds of deep tech, design and psychology.
