28 Examples of Humanized Artificial Intelligence

From Realistic Robot Toys to Living Store Windows

— October 29, 2015 — Tech
These examples of humanized artificial intelligence include predictive shopping features and living store windows but extend far beyond that. Mimicking human emotion, realistic robots are no longer limited to prototypes but are replacing hotel staff members by taking over cleaning, greeting and customer service duties.

Furthermore, experiential retail environments are elevating consumer experiences with robotic shop assistants that speak multiple languages while offering more product info than a human store employee can remember. Other standouts include tech-integrated teddy bears that speak and interact with owners along with robotic fitness instructors that encourage athletes to surpass daily goals much like a personal trainer would.

Other notable examples of humanized artificial intelligence are adapted spatially --Absolut Vodka's intuitive club project measures the energy levels of party goers in order to evolve and transform their overall nightlife experience.
