I created an app showing how Jibo might respond to verbal indications of a potential emergency situation such as fire or smoke or a request for help. If someone tells Jibo "I smell smoke", "fire", "I need help", "I'm hurt", etc., Jibo will inquire if help is needed and notify the appropriate authority if the response is yes. Additionally, in situations that could potentially involve a bad actor, Jibo videotapes the scene and asks for a password before returning to a non-emergency state. In all cases, Jibo also emits an alarm.
