Home health robot gets to know you via face and voice recognition


Pillo Health have developed an intelligent health and wellness assistant that gets to know you and your family through artificial intelligence and face and voice recognition.

According to the company’s Indiegogo page, Pillo can answer your health and wellness questions, connect you directly with healthcare professionals, and securely manage your vitamins and medication; storing, dispensing, and even ordering refills when you need them. The more you use and interact with the home-based gadget, the more its functionalities grow. The device stands at 13 inches tall and can hold 250 medium-size pills

Pillo stores up to four week’s worth of vitamins and medications in tamper proof containers within the device. Using sophisticated identity recognition technologies and proprietary software, Pillo can identify, interact and engage with different users in the home.

In an interview with Metro, Pillo Health co-founder James Wyman explained: “Pillo is a platform — we are building a very specific set of features into the first generation of Pillo. However, in time, both the team here at Pillo Health as well as external developers and partners can build all sorts of features that will allow Pillo to help us better manage our health and integrate into our connected homes.”

Pillo has an operating system based on Android and runs on a Quadcore ARM processor. Pillo will use user vision algorithms to identify the user, as well as additional algorithms to convert voice to text. Pillo’s software will use machine learning techniques for data analysis and user detection, so that the more a user interacts with the device, the more Pillo will be able to understand and learn about that user’s habits and preferences.

The startup has raised 93% of its $75,000 USD goal on crowdfunding site Indiegogo with a month to go.
