Panasonic’s own AI Arbo is here with Eluga Ray
In its effort to stay committed towards simplifying technology, Panasonic forayed into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with its in-house developed virtual assistance ‘Arbo’. Arbo is derived from Esperanto. Which means – a framework that supports climbing plants. Equipped with Arbo, Panasonic unveiled two new smartphones Eluga Ray Max and Eluga Ray X available exclusively on Flipkart priced at Rs. 11,499 (32GB), Rs.12,499 (64GB) and Rs. 8,999 respectively.
First devices to be launched with Arbo AI
The Virtual assistant is a self-learning technology that understands the user behaviour and then maps their daily activities for them accordingly. With its ‘location identification’ feature it recognizes the places often visited by the user and sends out prompt responses asking them to make changes to their phone settings. The AI powered assistant takes care of all the daily tasks and activities like calls and messages that need to be framed and sent out on a regular basis. It also keeps a detailed list of all the applications functioning on the smartphone, gathers detailed information on their habits and informs them about it accordingly.
