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.

Human and robot’s cooperation to be the best in financial consultant industry

If you are one robot fan who is always caring about the robotics affairs, you must know about Alexa robot from Amazon. Right now, this robot is playing the role of consultant for customers in UBS Group AG in Switzerland. With this progress, Alexa may make the appointments, analysis the stock and even invest into stock.

In recent years, robot consultant is becoming one kind of fashion. According to one investigation from CNBC, even though the consumers who use the robot consultant are limited, their interest in robot consultant is continuously growing.

As was reported from BBC, in the era of fast-developing artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence robotics is replacing human staff and going into financial department. Nowadays, the most of the transactions have been performed by robot independently in the Stock Exchange in New York and London.

Is the robot consultant just one kind of fashion? No. For individual users, robot consultant not only helps to choose and manage the balanced investment portfolio, but the cost is lower than general consultant companies. And this is one reason why the robot consultant is paid high attention to.

Of course, more enterprise clients prefer to communicate with human consultant to get the customized investment idea. Because they don’t think it reassuring to hand high amounts to the robot consultant. What’s more, the human consultant is able to give more proper ideas to enterprise clients in deed. However, this kind of humanoid service robot can exist because most of the work has high relation to its data statistics and data analysis.

As you may know, it is not easy to make one accurate and suitable solution. It requires not only the special analysis ability and judgement, but the powerful data processing ability. For example, the data that three consultants process in one day is easily handled by AI arithmetic within one hour. That is one advantages of robot consultant.

According to incomplete statistics, in the USA, there have been more than 200 companies who are investing in the blue ocean market of robot consultant and the financial giants such as Blackrouck, Fuidlity, Vanguard and some others are among them. City Bank pointed out in one of its reports, “In the future 10 years, the capital of robot consultants probably reaches 5 trillion US dollars and it is a great piece of meat undoubtedly.

With the heat of “robot consultant is taking the place of human consultant” topic, some specialists insist in the questionable voice. James Gorman, the new “King of Wall Street” and the CEO of Morgan Stanley, pointed out, “robot consultant can only attracted part of the clients and they cannot replace all the analysts, strategist and investment consultants.”

Yes, we have to admit that, the present robot consultant cannot be called “professional”. Therefore, the combination consultant mode of human and intelligent service robot will probably be the main trend and best choice in financial consultant industry in the future years.
