Ikkiworks, a case study

In this case study we hear from Alasdair Hamilton, from Remi.ai, and Seaton Mckeon, from Ikkiworks, about Ikki, an intelligent companion robot designed to help kids undergoing intensive treatment such as chemo therapy.

Combining therapeutic value, with features designed to comfort and calm children, Alasdair and Seaton discuss the process of designing and developing Ikki, and the role of machine learning and AI in giving it character, personality, and warmth.
