Thank you so much to everyone that participated in yesterday’s expert connect! There was a lot of great questions and wonderful participation.
We know that there were a few questions that we did not get to during yesterday’s event so we wanted to provide answers those questions here.
Thank you again for your time and participation yesterday!
Q. Will skill templates (e.g. typical flows and behavior trees) or starter setups be available at some point in the future?
A. We will be providing sample resources such as animations in future SDK updates as well as via sample code in our tutorials.
Q. can Jibo have concurrent interactions with two (or more) people he knows and identifies? And keep separate running contexts, unless both humans are dialoging on the same subject?
A. Jibo will be able to keep track of user provided data (as mentioned in this forum post) and this is something that developers will have access to use in their skill so that Jibo will be able engage with user A differently than how he engages with user B during the course of a skill.
Q. In addition to the Semi-Speech Audio, will you have programmed body movements to convey specific meanings?
A. Future SDK updates will include animation files we created here at Jibo to be use for specific meanings and emotions.
Q. Is Jibo planning to work with any brands such as talking to General Mills about developing a Betty Crocker cookbook skill?
A. We aren’t able to discuss any partnerships we have not announced publicly. We have already announced that Bandai Namco is working on a skill for Jibo! (https://blog.jibo.com/2016/05/11/jibo-and-bandai-namco-partnership/) And there are more skills in work with some fun brand names.
