Presented by RMDS with our partner Embodied
We're at a tipping point of a paradigm shift in the way we will interact with technology. Embodied is aiming to lead this charge through an advanced social interface that respects humans’ natural modes of interaction, beyond simple verbal commands, to enable the next generation of computing, and to power a new class of machines that will change the world around us. Embodied’s new platform, SocialX, provides a way to use natural human interaction to engage with technology. He will discuss how he and his team at Embodied are rethinking and reinventing how human-machine interaction is done through AI and natural language processing.

Founder and CEO, Embodied
Paolo Pirjanian is the former CTO of iRobot and early leader in the field of consumer robotics with 16+ years of experience developing and commercializing cutting-edge home robots. He led world-class teams and companies at iRobot®, Evolution Robotics®, and others. In 2016, Paolo founded Embodied, Inc. with the vision to build socially and emotionally intelligent companions that improve care and wellness and enhance our daily lives. Moxie, Embodied’s first product that launched in April, is an animate companion that helps children build social and emotional skills through play-based learning. To do this, Paolo brought together a cross-functional team of passionate leaders in engineering, technology, entertainment, game design, and child development. For the past four years, Embodied has been working tirelessly to bring all of the latest technology together to bring Moxie to life, and the team is excited to finally deliver it to families in need of a co-pilot for supporting healthy child development.
