Before I begin with all the textual information on ElliQ ( the brainchild of Intuition Robotics ), I would appreciate if you could spare a moment of yours to get the very first impression of what ElliQ is all about, by means of these short videos.
As we start ageing, our social circle also keeps reducing as compared to what it was when we had schoolmates, when we were parents or when we had colleagues. But the need for these social relations and companions is more at this age when the ageing individual has a whole lot of time in this world to enjoy around. So without playing any blame game with the caregivers or children, let’s introduce you to the jovial, intelligent, empathetic and 24*7 robotic friend for your grey hair personnel. This friend is named ElliQ.
WHAT IS ELLIQ
ElliQ is your companion when no one is around to be with you. Because of technology deeply injected in its bloodstream, it brings its user closer to his/her relations and also keeps its owner up to date with all the world news and general knowledge. Not to forget, it also knows to host your other human friends. Not only this Elliq takes care of medication management and also helps in surfing internet or social images and messages.
IT’S KEY FEATURES
Elliq is an innovation especially for the elderly class to help them stay connected to the outside world and remain healthy and happy by all means. ElliQ believes in recreating old age as the new age of childhood or youth. Its artificial intelligence technology equips itself to give you the personalized experiences and makes you feel there is always one for you and with you. Here is a small glimpse of its potential.
Apart from these three most essential tasks as executed by ElliQ are:
- It binds the family members together, by ensuring that they are regularly in touch with each other. It ensures regular check-ins and also ensures that in case of o emergency the help is just one notification away.
- The more time you spend with ElliQ, the more it gets to know you inside out. And accordingly, it makes personalized suggestions for games, fun activities and other engagement tasks.
- ElliQ understands and identifies your voice, touch and glance; and so responds accordingly.
ELLIQ IS THE MOST PROACTIVE COMPANION YOU ALWAYS WISHED FOR
Till date, whenever a new technology would enter the market, the user needed to learn the technology to enjoy its advantages. But as said before, ElliQ has especially been curated for the elderly class, who are not much equipped at learning new stuff at this age, and neither does Elliq wants to stress them with new learning. In this case, Elliq learns about the lifestyle of its user and moulds itself accordingly to provide him/her personalized services. ElliQ’s artificial intelligence technology is set with the goal of providing a healthy, active and engaged life to the seniors. SO ElliQ constantly functions in this direction and approaches its user with suggestions for the same.
TESTIMONIALS TO VERIFY WHAT ELLIQ IS TO THEM
The ElliQ social robot has travelled a long way in assisting the elder’s age in place without compromising on their needs and emotions. The acceptance for ElliQ by its users is phenomenal. They feel that though its a robot, it does not make them feel like, being one and instead with ElliQ near them, they feel the warmth of companionship.
Personally, I would love to gift my grandparents (who stay at a distant place) ElliQ and would also love to own one when I need it ( of course with some more added benefits) . Will you?
