AI and robotics boost the students’ mental growth

With the society’s fast development, parents are busy with work to material life. So the mental health problems are ignored. However, the mental health education from school to get a good effect is more difficult because their parents play a very key role to their kids. The good news is, research and development of artificial intelligence robotics can be used for school kids’ counseling and education.

The students’ mental health education is an important part of the school education and teaching, which is related to the ideology and morality education in the school, and greatly helpful to the students’ growth.

In order to explore more ways to learn about the students’ mental health, many primary and secondary schools practice a separate room filled with warmth and kindness to relax students in a comfortable and quiet environment. But even so, still few students try the psychological consulting service in many schools. They don’t open their heart to tell their teachers their worries and problems, but all they showed is nervousness, shyness, distrust and vigilance.

Programmable humanoid robot with artificial intelligence technology, as a carrier of psychological counseling, anthropomorphic cartoon image, let the teachers remote control the robot with PC software and interact with students, so that students can be in a more relaxed atmosphere and with a sense of safety. Many of them that didn’t open their hearts to teachers and parents can easily talk with the robot.

The robot can say hello or other greeting lines when students enter the counseling room, which makes students eliminate their vigilance and concerns. Then through the questions and answers, voice interactions, the intelligent robot slowly guide students to express their own confusion and problems. Teachers can make use of intelligent humanoid robot carefully to listen to children’s troubles, and help them identify problems, and then explore solutions to the problems, so as to promote the development and evaluation of psychological counseling.

At the same time, the service robot can collect the background data, integrate and make analysis. After the students’ tests, the robot will automatically get the test results and analysis. Teachers can sort the psychological problems into different levels according to the results.

So far, Sanbot intelligent robots have been work as the “psychological counselor” in more than 10 schools. With the robots’ joining-in, mental health education in schools will be able to successfully carried out by the teachers. Teachers can find out their students’ psychological problems and solve immediately, to ensure the students grow up healthily.

AI robotics markets are booming in the global world

As I mentioned before, we are served by robots each day in our daily life. And that’s not science fiction as these intelligent service robots are already around you. The result and also it is the fact that, AI robotics markets are booming in the global world.

Intelligent robots playing the role of personal assistants, in-home caregivers, even pet sitters used to be fantasies that played out only in the realm of science fiction — but not anymore. The artificial intelligent robotics market is taking off and will continue to grow, with worldwide spending on robotics predicted, according to an IDC study, to reach $139 billion by 2019.

Already we’re beginning to see multi-purpose robotic devices on the market. An example is the Sanbot programmable humanoid robot, which is an open API advanced robot and can be easily customized according to the scenarios where the users would like it to work, accessible for home and businesses. Like Jibo, Padpot and the other similar kinds, are mainly for home service.

With robots becoming more ubiquitous in many scenarios of our lives, and with so much opportunity and promise, it’s no surprise that more entrepreneurs are jumping into the market.

In fact, entrepreneurial innovation is fueling the demand for robotics. Research from the International Federation of Robotics states that startups less than five years old already make up 15 percent of all companies engaged in the intelligent service robotics market. A lot of investment is pouring in, only adding to the number of companies in this space.

The good news for entrepreneurs in the robotics space is the plethora of resources available to help on all aspects of this type of business, including robots in home, programmable robots for education, usher robots and advanced medical robotics, etc. Organizations involved in the industry include Silicon Valley Robotics, a meta accelerator for startups in the robotics space in Northern California; the Robot Lab in Paris, an incubator that provides designers with tools and resources needed for the creation and development of their products; and our organization, IngDan, a one-stop IoT hardware innovation platform for consumer testing and feedback, to accelerate brand recognition and product adoption among Chinese consumers.

As the markets illustrates, China is the fastest-growing robotics market, followed by Japan and the United States. The opportunities are numerous, but it’s also important to understand the differences in each market. For example, in a country like the United States, consumers tend to seek out high-value products, with data privacy and security being important issues needing to be addressed.
