A UK-based company has developed a smart robotic pet that uses artificial intelligence to interact with humans.

The robot is intended to be a companion for the elderly and people with disabilities. It is claimed to be the world’s first commercial biomimetic robot.

The machine is fitted with various sensors, meaning it can feel a stroke on its head or back. Its tactile perception and mood regulation systems allow it to respond accordingly with expressive behavior, such as tail wagging.

The robot has smart stereo cameras built into its eyes, which allow it to recognize people and follow their movements.
