MUSE API (Beta) Sneak Peak

Today, we have the sneak preview of MUSE API (Beta). MUSE API is what Musio actually talks to in the cloud to manage the dialogue and generate things to say, recognize faces, etc. In order to show you better some of the major things going on behind the Musio, we built a temporary front-end for the API. We have a video explaining features of API as well as accompanying material. Our API is on its way, so stay tuned!

Musio Version 1.1.7

At last, we have the long-awaited version 1.1.7 update ready for download! Ver 1.1.7 Update Manual Please read through the instructions below and follow the steps in order, while charging your Musio.

What Makes Musio Special?

Musio is an Artificial Intelligence robot using deep learning algorithms that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using multiple processing layers with complex structures. This enables Musio to think and decide what to say based on previous conversations and information gathered. His natural language processing lets him interact with you and have a fluent English conversation just like a real friend. Unlike other robots of the same kind, Musio has a personality and loves to talk, not just answers simple trivial questions like Siri found on Apple’s mobile devices or Amazons’ Echo. Apart from having a natural conversation, he can also recognize faces and objects. This way, Musio adds to the natural interaction between himself and humans. Note: Musio’s voice is not […]

Deep learning facial recognition


Humans always had the innate ability to recognize and distinguish between faces. Now, it is not erroneous to say that robots can manage this ability too. As Cindy starts talking, Musio locates her face, extracts facial cues, and identifies that she is in fact, Cindy. Admittingly this technology doesn’t seem so cutting-edge considering most modern smartphones already have an facial recognition feature embedded in them. However, Musio’s vision team believes that visual cues are an important component of communication and are spending a large amount of resources in creating a more refined identification system.   Lead computer vision engineer Justin says “We are very aware that there already exists a vast amount of both open-source and commercial software which enables […]
