Cozmo is a palm-sized robot from San Francisco-based Anki, and is actually an earlier version of an Anki robot called Vector. Vector has more capabilities in the area of artificial intelligence, thanks to its use of a processor that’s normally used to power smartphones. In contrast, Cozmo has a more basic main processor. So a lot of the computations that Cozmo makes actually happen in the cloud, thanks to a cellphone app. Cozmo has been built to interact with its users and has a small display screen that, in conjunction with audio effects, can be used to mimic human emotional responses. Anki even hired a former Pixar animator to help give Cozmo the feeling of an animated film character. The robot emits a diverse series of emotive chirps when someone is around, which it senses with its built-in camera. The result is a WALL-E-inspired personality that makes Cozmo seem more like a pet than a toy robot.
