Running out of gift ideas and need a little inspiration? The TWIML team has you covered! We put together a Holiday Gift Guide featuring some of our favorite AI-enabled products. It’s probably no surprise if you listen to the podcast, but AI has found its way into a bunch of different areas. This is just a small sampling of some of the nifty gadgets and services that caught our attention this holiday season. Surprise the AI enthusiast (or non-enthusiast) in your life with:
The Drone: ActiveTrack + Advanced Pilot Asset System
am felt this list wouldn’t be complete without at least one drone, and this is the one on his wish list. The DJI Mavic Air 2 has all the usual drone things: good sensors, a nice camera, etc., but what makes the drone unique is the stellar AI software. ActiveTrack 3.0 and Advanced Pilot Assist System 3.0 features allow you to focus on a subject and have it tracked and filmed while the drone is in flight. There’s a pretty good review of the drone here.
Personal Trainer for Running
For those of us missing the gym, running is often the only refuge. We like the Vi app because it uses AI to personalize workouts, offer to coach, and give daily challenges– all helpful qualities when you’re trying to build healthy habits!
Coding Robots for Kids & Adults
This one is for the kiddos! (And anyone learning to code). We’re fans of this little smart Root Coding Robot that complements any level of coding experience. It’s super interactive, with 3 learning levels full of lessons, projects, and activities. If you’re curious about how iRobot is using AI, check out this TWIML interview on Re-Architecting Data Science at iRobot with Angela Bassa, the company’s Global Global Head of Analytics & Data Science. For older kids or young-at-heart adults, DJI’s Robomaster S-1 is a neat choice too and allows users to program with some simple AI building blocks like person detection.
In an effort to create a skincare program based on data science, Proven established The Skin Genome ProjectTM, which became the most comprehensive skincare database you can find and winner of MIT’s 2018 Artificial Intelligence Award. With this database that accounts for over 20,000 skincare ingredients, 100,000 products, 8 million testimonials, and even the climate you live in – they’re able to curate skin care formulas based on your skin.
