Meet ‘iPal Robot’ Which Can Monitor and Entertain Kids without Adult Supervision

ipal

Humanoid Robots were out for supervision of children without adults. IPal is a robot which exhibited at this year’s ‘RoboBusiness’ event in San Jose, California. And treated iPal Robot as the largest robotics event all around the world.

iPal, created by a Chinese start-up company named as AvatarMind. A two-year-old company to look after the kids between the age group of 3-8 years without human supervision. The Robot equipped with Autonomous Learning Engine to remember the kid’s preferences and interests.

It can update the kid’s photos and videos to parents, by which they can access on their smartphones. It can monitor time when the kid wakes up from sleep, watches whether the child washed his hands, etc..

This cute cartoon outlook iPal has wide eyes, working fingers with pastel trimming and crafted fine. IPal is about 3-foot tall body packed with 25 motors, sits on four wheels and has a 6-inch LCD touchscreen tablet on its chest and sound system of 3-watt.

This companion robot can sing, dance, read stories, talk, and entertain the kid with games like rock-paper-scissors.

iPal installed with many apps to educate the child with general knowledge. And also it can answer any question which the kid throws like “ why is the sun hot ?” with natural language understanding technology along with cloud apps. Kids can even learn Programming on it.

No wonder that iPal would be a best friend to the child at home. With the sensors it can feel touch, listens to speech and can detect the emotion of the child and responds to the happiness, loneliness, and depression and encourages kid when sad through “emotion management system.”

Apart from the happy end, there are criticisms too. Some of the researchers from the University of Lisbon say that “there is a need for the kid to know and develop the human values, culture, social ethics and behavioral abilities to be accepted by the society.

Where these all lacks in the automated robot.” Well, that’s true for the researchers but, to the happy end, this iPal roll out is a tech-adoptable valuable creation for the kids.

iPal is now available in China to all by the end of the year and will appear in the US starting from next year.

Does GENES Determine Educational Achievement and Job Success In The WOMB?

nature genetics

Does genetics play a significant role in deciding your child’s educational achievement and the job success?  Let’s check out what the researchers of the new genetics study say.

A never ending debate of parents, educators and scientists for decades on how much of the intelligence is down to nature or nurture has hopefully come to an end with this study. A new genetic study which was carried out among social scientists looked at genetic data of 300,000 people at European descent uncovered 74 genes which may affect the educational level of a person, which in turn also affect the job success.

An international team of Researchers in this study did not relate employment directly to the degree of education. While the researchers in previous studies showed a strong connection between the level of education, a person achieves and future job and pay.

Researchers in this study scanned genomes of a vast number of individuals and were able to find which genes related health conditions and other life factors including the level of education. Though the effect was minimal, the researches study revealed that the people with certain variants of same 74 genes were more likely to achieve high levels of education.

Dr Daniel Benjamin, a researcher at The University of Sothern California said, “This study builds on our earlier work in which we had studied 100,000 individuals and found three genetic variants linked to educational attainment.”

“This time, because of our much larger sample – almost 300,000 individuals – we were able to identify far more genetic variants that are associated with educational attainment,” added Daniel Benjamin.

The researchers who focused on only people of European descent say that these gene variants can have an effect on the amount of schooling a person receives and they account for just 0.43% of the genetic contribution to educational achievement.

‘Educational attainment is jointly influenced by genes and environment,’ added Dr Benjamin. “The genetic variants that we found account for a small fraction of the differences across individuals in education.’

The findings were published in the journal Nature Genetics.
