Designing Jibo for developers
Through the Jibo SDK, developers have high-level access to Jibo’s audio processing, visual processing, persona and interaction, and movement capabilities. The SDK gives developers the tools to build a wide range of Jibo Skills for personal enjoyment or as a business opportunity. We sincerely believe developers have a huge role to play in extending Jibo’s personality and capabilities, making him the social robot people are looking forward to being part of their lives.
To realize this, Jibo’s SDK development team has been working on creating an SDK that makes developing on Jibo accessible to a wide range of developers. Our skills development team has been using the alpha version internally for a number of months now. In this video, Jonathan Ross and Francois Laberge talk about the challenges of building Jibo’s SDK and some of the innovative approaches they’ve used including the use of Electron and the Atom Editor from Github.
