Sneh, Prashant and Chintan leverage artificial intelligence to foster learning and growth in children!

During the pandemic, kids' tech adoption reached new heights — and AI took center stage. Nearly 8 in 10 parents now believe AI is the future of learning, yet few products offer the safe, interactive learning experience that parents want for their children. Miko addresses this gap using proprietary artificial intelligence, robotics and IoT. Packed with personality and deep-learning AI, Miko’s AI robot companions understand the emotional needs of children and help them experience the spark of interactive, playful learning. 

The Miko series of robots are driven and developed by global experts in engineering, mathematics, design and education. Owing to their success, the company now aspires to cater their latest platform solutions to 20M homes by 2023, including verticals such as childcare, daycare and elderly care.
