Sony invests in artificial intelligence

Sony was a pioneer in AI with robotic dog AIBO in 1999 and humanoid robot QRIO in 2003; both launched with much fanfare. But its AI drive stalled during a decade-long struggle for profitability in its core consumer electronics business as it faced price competition from Asian rivals. It produced its last AIBO and QRIO robots in 2006.
Sony has since restructured its television set, laptop computer and mobile phone operations and is now seeking to regain its technological competitiveness through AI. The firm plans to release a product or service derived from collaboration with Cogitai as early as next year, Kitano said. “We are considering various options, including a robot,” he said.
