On tonight’s show, Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy learn all about Autom, the world's first robot weight loss coach from one of the smartest people we have ever met Autom's creator, Dr Cory Kidd.
Cory recently completed his Ph.D. in human-robot interaction at the MIT Media Lab and is known as leading researcher in the field. His experience in human-robot interaction and developing novel technology for healthcare applications for the last ten years is a key to Intuitive Automata’s success.
Prior to his graduate studies at the Media Lab, Cory was a research scientist as part of the Aware Home project at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Autom was designed to help people who are trying to lose weight keep it off by encouraging them to stick with their diet and exercise program. Autom verbally asks dieters to input data about what they ate on a touch screen then she provides encouragement and advice. Autom will be available for purchase in a year or so, but they will be needing testers sooner than that so if you are interested please go to Cory’s website and sign up www.intuitiveautomata and www.myautom.comFor more Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy check out our new Wellness Minutes blog where we give you in depth information on health, fitness and weight loss topics in 3 minutes or less every single day.
