The Guidyt project is held for four months at the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art). As we told you in this article, Pepper is becoming a virtual assistant, to provide information on the different works that make up the museum’s exhibition.
It is worth mentioning that, for Pepper to be able to develop autonomously within the space, as well as to offer an optimal user experience, pilot tests were carried out during the first two initial months of the project. In these, a sample of 500 people was used, of which 82% interacted with the Pepper. Thanks to the questionnaire offered by Pepper at the end of its guide, it was determined that 92% of users are very satisfied with the service it offers.
As for the reception of Pepper by MEAM workers, this is also very positive. They emphasize that this is a help and support that complements their work. However, thanks to the autonomy they have, it does not involve any kind of effort but allows them to offer an innovative and technological service.
In the next two months of the Guidyt project, Pepper has been present in two museum exhibitions. In both, the results have been as expected. However, thanks to the observation extracted from the first exhibition, Yasyt Robotics has strengthened the application, making it more accurate and direct for users. It should be noted that this is a project in continuous evolution, which during the previous analysis and in the course of these months we have been able to draw new conclusions to improve Guidyt.
During the course of the implementation of the Guidyt project at MEAM, the project was reported in the national media. From articles such as La Vanguardia, RTVE o Agencia EFE in digital press, such as radio programs such asPopap de Catalunya Ràdio, or digital reports such as Betevé. Similarly, via social media, we have also received recognition from profiles such as Connecticat, as well as mentions from major media profiles.
