Domesticated Robots? Inside Amazon’s Plan To Launch Robots To Help In Your Smart Home
According to many sources, Amazon is building domestic robots. The smart home tech already has a lot – from sensors and connected light bulbs to smart locks and more. Though it is quite clear that Amazon is planning to launch home robots, what exactly their functions will be is a bit unclear. Amazon's Lab126 is working diligently on Vesta, a secret project. The domestic robots are not really a huge technological leap as it just means that Alexa is getting a body.
Alexa would be the UI of the home robot. Amazon Lex would be responsible for natural language processing and speech recognition. Amazon SageMaker trains models and can help integrate with DeepLens.
Amazon Rekognition, a computer vision service that can analyze images and video. Perhaps this domestic robot from Amazon can tell you when you need to repair something (and then order parts from Amazon). AWS DeepLens, a machine learning enabled video camera. DeepLens runs deep learning models locally on a camera, analyzes, and then takes action. This tool would be very handy in a robot.
We have already seen Amazon with its hardware designs. We can only assume that the domestic robots too will be great additions to our smart homes.
