……..the social robotics technology company spun out from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has relaunched Misty the robot, following its acquisition of US-based Misty Robotics earlier this year. The new platform is designed to be more intuitive and easier to use, with Python as its main programming language and a user-friendly drag and drop interface that is ideal for non-programmers in the education sector (students and teachers).
The new Misty also boasts enhanced language skills that allow more complex, conversational interactions. Furhat Robotics CEO Samer Al Moubayed said: “The possibilities are endless, from helping students who are learning programming to assisting in making the classroom more inclusive and accessible. Beyond that, the applications for social robots are far reaching from social and health care to unbiased recruitment.”
