In the post-Covid-19 world, isolation and loneliness have become major human problems across the globe.
Humans are social creatures who long for touch, connection, and a sense of belonging with others. Having to deal with isolation for long periods can have detrimental effects on our mental and physical health. But how to solve the issue of loneliness in a world where high-quality human-to-human connections might not be possible for everyone?
Loneliness is a growing problem across the world, with around one in three people in industrialized countries being affected by this condition. One in 12 people is severely affected by loneliness, and sadly, this number is on the rise.
Besides increasing the risk of premature mortality, loneliness can also lead to a plethora of mental and physical health conditions if not monitored properly. While loneliness is often stigmatized and trivialized, the problem is too big to be ignored—it is a serious public health concern.
How Destiny Robotics Can be the Solution
Destiny Robotics, an AI and robotics company founded by 25-year-old serial entrepreneur Megi Kavtaradze, strives to solve the growing isolation problem by providing each human being with their own humanoid robotic assistant.
Despite all the strides made in AI technology, humans are still not able to establish deep connections with AI-powered robots. Megi hopes to revolutionize the way humans and robots interact with her path-breaking humanoid “Destiny,” a socially-intelligent robot capable of connecting with humans in a deeply engaging manner.
She and her excellent team at Destiny Robotics are working on creating robots that not only perform sophisticated tasks around the household but are also capable of connecting with humans on an emotional level through their facial expression capacities.
Who is “Destiny”?
Destiny is the first at-home humanoid robotic assistant created as a result of collaboration between AI, engineering, art, science, and design elements. She will assist people in a vast range of activities, including household technical chores, to make their lives more convenient.
Destiny also has the capacity to connect with humans on an emotional level and provide them with the much-needed “human touch.”
