“I come from a senior living background. In senior housing, tenants care about their safety and comfort. They and their family need to know that they are cared for. Communities that focus on this attract more residents and get higher rent.” – Dr. Ashutosh Saxena, Co-Founder & CEO, Caspar.AI
AI System that turns your Home into a Robot
Ashutosh Saxena is the Co-Founder and CEO of Caspar.AI, which developed an AI system that turns a home into a sort of robot that addresses the needs of seniors. By later this summer, Caspar.AI will have been installed in about 500 apartments in California and Tokyo.
Each of these apartments is outfitted with around 100 devices including motion and humidity sensors, microphones, cameras, thermostats, and automated appliances. All of these feed data about residents’ behavior to Caspar, which uses a number of algorithms to analyze the data so that it gradually learns and adapts to people’s habits and preferences.
If you tend to ask a lot of questions about the packages you are expecting, Caspar.AI will learn to send you alerts when they arrive. It will also learn to tailor its music playlist to what you are doing at the moment.
