BISITE-developed robot guide achieves international recognition

It has only been a little over two and a half years since the AIR Institute released the very first version of the tool. Today, this powerful data analysis platform, also referred to as Deep Intelligence, is already the backbone of multiple smart developments in Spain and beyond, and it enables projects like the Monsagro Museum’s guide robot.

From energy-efficient, zero-waste buildings in Salamanca, to smart city management case studies across Barcelona, Sofia and Istanbul, agile bike rental systems in Paris, and robotic tour guides in the village of Monsagro; is supporting innovative, smart developments in surprisingly diverging areas.

360info reports that big data is a key element for today’s increasingly advanced society. As the human mind is incapable of memorizing and analysing such large amounts of information, without the technologies underpinning the Big Data paradigm, we would have never been able to make such informed decisions as we do today. For this reason, and other data analysis platforms play an important role in shaping a smarter future.

This recently led to the development of a trilobite-shaped robot guide, which is responsible for guiding visitors in the Museum of the Ancient Seas in Monsagro. This is the result of BISITE’s careful development, which includes advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning and federated learning capabilities.

The robot can distinguish between children and adults and adapt their guidance and information accordingly. This trilobite robot is just a small example of the potential of combining robotics and data analytics. Studies indicate that soon smart cities will employ robots to better protect citizensclean or assist people with special needs.
