Amazon’s AI-powered robot falls short in fixing the broken smart home
Amazon’s AI-powered home robot, Astro, may not be the solution to fixing the broken smart home, according to leaked documents. The upcoming next-gen version of Astro, codenamed ‘Burnham,’ aims to enhance the robot’s intelligence and conversational abilities using contextual understanding. Examples cited in the leaked documents include the robot notifying users of a stove left burning or helping locate misplaced keys. However, critics argue that focusing on futuristic concepts neglects the pressing need to address the current challenges of the smart home ecosystem.
