We’re at a tipping point in the way we will interact with technology. At Embodied, we have been rethinking and reinventing how human-machine interaction is done beyond simple verbal commands, to enable the next generation of computing, and to power a new class of machines capable of fluid social interaction. Moxie is a new type of robot that has the ability to understand and express emotions with emotive speech, believable facial expressions and body language, tapping into human psychology and neurology to create deeper bonds,” said Paolo Pirjanian, CEO and Founder of Embodied, Inc. and former CTO of iRobot.
