At CES 2019, automation specialists and robotics maker OMRON put on an interactive demonstration of the many ways humans and robots paired with AI will work together in the future.
To showcase the integrated AI technology at the heart of OMRON’s product lines, called OMRON Sensing & Control + Think, the company brought back the extremely popular AI-empowered table tennis tutor the company introduced at last year’s CES, FORPHEUS.
FORPHEUS shows how the company’s vision of human-machine harmony in action. FORPHEUS learns from its interaction with the player to help improve their table tennis game. Rather than being a competitor, FORPHEUS encourages the player, readjusting its own game to keep the allow for longer rallies by the player, and offering coaching advice on how the player can improve.
