Pros and Cons of the Upcoming Digital Assistant Aristotle

Digital assistants are expected to take off in sales in 2017 with options such as Google Home and Amazon Echo leading contenders.  But a new option set to drop later this year is designed to assist parents while being considered the next version of Alexia for children.  Consumers will be introduced to Mattel’s newest tech product “Aristotle,” a baby monitor that operates via voice control.  The toy maker announced the product will be available for purchase in June.  From the looks of the product it seems like an advanced baby monitor with unique features parents can find useful.

Demand for Digital Personal Assistants Expected to Rise

There has been plenty of buzz about digital personal assistants and people seem like they can’t get enough of them.  Amazon Echo and Google Home are popular options that were popular during the 2016 holiday shopping season.  There is even talk of a home robot that can help with math problems, play music, and tell the time consumers are sure to get excited about this year. Drones and virtual headsets are other tech products that are expected to rise in popularity as consumers gain more interest in technology that serves a personal purpose.

The Latest from Mattel

The Aristotle by Nabi is another personal assistant product getting the attention of tech experts and potential consumers.  The product is a high-tech baby monitor that goes into action as soon as it detects a crying baby.  Parents get notified on their smartphones when their baby cries via Aristotle.  The digital assistant can play a lullaby to sooth the baby. The assistant also is voice-activated with the ability to provide a number of commands.

Overall, parents can create a cloud-based platform just for their baby.  The product features technology from Qualcomm, Microsoft, and Internet of Things through the use of artificial intelligence.  The product is compatible with Amazon ecosystems, Samsung SmartThings, and other related systems.  As an all-in-one system, Aristotle is designed to work with children and parents.  The technology allows parents to use their voice through the device. The product is priced at roughly $300 per unit.  The digital assistant product will go on sale in June 2017.

Are There Privacy Concerns?

A number of products developed recently using the same technology has raised privacy concerned, especially products geared toward children or those that may have a child be considered as a user.  A reason for the privacy concerns is due to such products lacking the ability to be hacked.  Digital assistants designed for kid-friendly environments may consider such products to invade family privacy.  The makers of Aristotle stress the product has special features including privacy protections and security measures built in.

The product features unique Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities with object recognition and 256-bit cloud encryption. The product complies with a special children’s privacy act (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) to protect children’s privacy of those under 13 years of age. Microsoft’s Cortana is used along with the search engine Bing for Aristotle’s intelligence.  Qualcomm provides the camera display, learning, audio, and voice recognition technology.

Additional Details

Aristotle can be used in a similar manner as those who use Amazon Echo. Users can give commands by calling out Aristotle’s name. There are parental controls parents can use to limit how the product is used by children.  If using this device like other digital assistants, the parental controls could limit some of the features used.  The product features LED lights toddlers will find eye-catching, but the product can help children identify such colors, sing songs, and even read a bedtime story.
