Moxi Robot: Smart Hospital Robot
Moxi, Moxi Robot
Moxi Robot described as a socially intelligent robot capable of supporting clinical staff to become a vital and trusted member of the team. Unlike, say, Robear — a Japanese-made health care robot capable of lifting people in and out of a bed — Moxi isn’t built for patient interaction. Instead, it’s designed to carry out a range of logistical tasks for nurses, giving them more time for interaction with patients.
Moxi says “Hello there” to people it passes in the hall, but it shouldn’t be confused with a conversational bot. Moxi doesn’t play whale sounds or answer random questions like Alexa and Google Assistant do. In fact, Moxi doesn’t do much talking at all when it wants to signal it has entered a room or is changing direction. “There’s lots of more beeps and whistles that are used for particular context than natural language, and that’s really to communicate that right now, Moxi’s not a chatbot,” Thomaz told VentureBeat in a phone interview.
