Promobot - The Latest Artificial Intelligence Robot is Learning Aussie at the 2018 Commonwealth Games

The Robot Can Spaek 7 Different Lanaugaes And Is Now Learning Australian Slang

A Gold Coast company brings the newest artificial intelligence robot to learn Aussie (Australian slang) at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. The robot called Promobot (www.PromoRobot.com.au) is the latest promotional robot with facial recognition and speech that greets, addresses people by name, asks them about their day, as well as tells them the latest news. The robot has the unique ability to learn a vast amount of information quickly about events, locations, products and services and relay that information in an interesting way to people.


David McMahon (Marketing Automation Specialist) from Crocodile Marketing says, “We are inviting people at the Commonwealth Games to interact with Promobot to help it learn Aussie (Australian slang) while we make the final adjustments to the robot for Australian conditions.” The robot is built in Europe and is the very first robot on the market with its own unique character straight out of the box.

There are already several hundred Promobots working in the US, China, Europe and the UK. It is currently being used in various ways: in shopping centres for directions; in banking to help with administration; hotel concierge and tour guides in museums, trade shows and conference events. It can already speak seven languages and is designed to work in areas with a large number of people helping with navigation, answering questions and remembering everyone that it has met.

“So far people’s reaction to Promobot has been wonderful, with hundreds of people wanting to take selfies and videos to share on social media of the robot dancing and telling them jokes.” says David McMahon.

Promobot is an autonomous service robot for businesses with a touch screen as well as facial and voice recognition. Designed to work in crowded places, it helps with navigation and answering questions. It also shows promotional materials and remembers everyone that it communicates with.
