Robot potpourri: Concierge, security guard, and VIP greeter
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) based in San Francisco has been asked to halt the use of their security robot, which they had started using after experiencing a lot of car break-ins, theft, and vandalism. SPCA also reported that they have seen a decline in the crimes after adopting the robot. However, some tagged the robot as the "anti-homeless" robot, whose aim was to dislodge homeless campers and whose appearance was considered creepy.
The Global Entrepreneurship Summit last year was inagurated with Modi and Trump pressing a button on a robot developed by a startup based in Bangalore, India.
Variations of the robot are envisioned to be used for customer assistance and therefore projected to increase sales via smart conversations as well as a party photographer, DJ, and live tweeter.
