Crazies & Co announced the creation of a holographic educational AI assistant called Sidekicks.ai. A device that adopts the latest holographic technology to offer interactive characters able to communicate in a much more immersive way with users.
The company's team of experts wants to enable humans to harness the power of artificial intelligence with a more "humanoid" interface. The coronavirus pandemic has widened distances by harming the mental and physical health of many people. In this long "social exile" the children have spent a lot of time with screens, facing the challenges associated with online learning and distance learning. A change with a huge, maladaptive impact.
A holographic AI educational assistant was created to mitigate this impact in the short term, and to improve some methods in the near future.
Designed to reshape education
Sidekicks.ai is unlike any other AI assistant available on the market today. It doesn't just do Alexa-like things like weather forecasting or turning on the lights. He interacts and educates each member of the family in a more empathic and proactive way, trying to reduce distances.
You can learn a new language, develop a new skill and do many other things in your spare time. While it's not easy, always having a reliable coach around you can help simplify and speed up the learning process.
Crazies & Co. is the startup that developed Sidekicks with the stated aim of transforming distance learning. The company has been part of incubators such as Intel Innovators, Y Combinator's Startup School e future works. Last month, Sidekicks launched a Kickstarter campaign that hit its goal in just thirty minutes and surpassed $ 300.000 in 10 days. Here is the teaser video presentation of the AI assistant.
AI assistant, looking for the perfect digital interlocutor
The search for "human" interfaces to increasingly advanced AI and language processing software continues briskly. Companies are looking for an assistant like Sidekicks even for exhibitions or hosting events. It can announce the launch of a product with the help of its advanced holographic display. It can initiate conversations and improve customer interaction.
Imagine a "shop" integrated directly into an assistant like this. You say "Sidekicks, I'd like to buy a jewel", and a desk appears, complete with an assistant, showing you the products and advising you as if you were physically there. The missing link between the physical and digital store. Or the hybrid that replaces both in many cases.
We are currently in its infancy. The AI characters offered by the first versions of Sidekicks launched just a month ago are still a bit cartoonish and precarious. Their improvement will be rapid and advanced.
