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

With the advent of modern-micro families, parents have struggled to spend quality time with their children. This has created a communication gap that negatively impacts a child’s learning potential. Miko addresses this gap by using proprietary artificial intelligence, robotics and IoT to understand the emotional state of a child and help them learn.

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