Sony brings back its iconic Aibo robot dog


Sony has unveiled a new version of its Aibo robot dog, which is now equipped with artificial intelligence capabilities that allow it to learn tricks and develop bonds with its owner.

The revival of the robot dog, which was removed from shelves 12 years ago, was announced yesterday at the company’s headquarters in Tokyo.

Unlike its previous incarnations, the new and improved version makes use of advancements in AI technology. It can learn tricks from its owner, as well as becoming aware of its surroundings and recognising faces and voices.

These learned behaviours are then stored in the Cloud, and are constantly updated over time as the dog comes into contact with other Aibo and humans.

“Aibo’s AI learns from interactions with its owners and develops a unique personality over time,” said Sony.
