Amazon's cooking up a new home robot. Amazon's getting chatty with its new home robot, Burnham. With talk of ChatGPT-like features, it's set to be an AI game-changer. It's not all smooth sailing though – privacy concerns are on the horizon. Thanks, The Rundown.
A leaked internal document by Insider reports that Amazon is working on a secret AI project named Burnham, aimed at enhancing the intelligence of Amazon’s Astro robot with AI.
The new tech promises to add a ‘conversational interface’ and a deeper understanding of household contexts, allowing Astro to accurately remember and respond to situations.
This might include alerting homeowners about a stove left on, calling 911 in emergencies, or finding lost keys. While the advancements in AI are exciting, the notion of a highly intelligent robot in our homes might give one pause for thought.
