Unlike other robot dogs on the market, says the company, KODA is designed to be functional from pragmatic and emotional perspectives. It is a social robot, which is in part why the company gave it a head. When a KODA cocks its ear to its owner's voice and runs over to be close, says the company, the consumer will know it's because KODA heard and understood them.
KODA's blockchain-enabled decentralized AI infrastructure allows it to serve a multitude of purposes. From family companions to seeing eye dogs, from an ever-vigilant guard dog to a powerful supercomputer capable of helping science solve some of its most complex problems, the learning power of KODA, says the company, makes it future proof in both its evolution and application.
"KODA is a marriage of design and science," says said Emma Russell, CEO of KODA. "It is a functional piece of home technology, a family pet, and a piece of art all at once. KODA represents access to computing power few have ever had in the home before. Those who take this opportunity to be an original owner of a KODA, will be able to watch its decentralized AI in action as it evolves from a puppy-like state to a robotic dog with the intelligence of a supercomputer."
Engaging in a hybrid AI model of centralized and decentralized engines, each KODA dog's brain not only processes the challenges they encounter throughout the day - such as climbing stairs or walking on gravel - but the challenges of every robotic dog in the pack. Each KODA is connected to a secure blockchain network allowing for an industry-first decentralized AI mind. This network is used to share data points, process optimal solutions, and learn skills while it forgets the remaining superfluous data.
For example, a KODA dog in Phoenix can harness its pack members' knowledge of other KODAs based in colder climates, like Anchorage, Maine, or Toronto.
