Miika K.I. (Franckh-Kosmos Verlags-GmbH & Co KG)
Franckh-Kosmos sets a milestone with Miika K.I., an adaptive robot with which young people can learn the basics of artificial intelligence through play. Initial insights are provided by building the robot, which is later trained with an app. The more often Miika K.I. is fed with gestures, speech or sounds, the faster it executes commands. For the jury, the pioneering experimental set is the winner of the Teen & Adults category. The jury praised the holistic concept, the integration into a story by means of a comic strip, the detailed instructions with instructive background knowledge, and the possibility of defining one’s own gestures.
