CONYERS, Ga., May 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pink Sheets: GOSY) (http://www.GeckoSystems.com) revealed today their world’s first achievement, sentient artificial intelligence in cost effective, truly utilitarian mobile home robots for family care. For over twenty years, GeckoSystems has dedicated itself to development of "AI Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service™."
“AI sentience, a machine’s awareness of its context and the appropriate, common sense responses to the dynamics and realities of its situation, has been pursued by AI researchers for several decades. Our constellation of synergistic AI Savants within our self-subsuming biological hierarchical architecture enables the invocation of emergent behaviors that produce beneficial, pet-like sentience for family lifestyle betterment, as well as other mobile service robot applications,” stated Martin Spencer, CEO, GeckoSystems.
The GeckoSuper™ manages the AI constellation to achieve the gestalt affect in that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Under the GeckoSuper’s direction, AI sentience results from the combination of GeckoNav™, GeckoTrak™, GeckoImager™, GeckoChat™, and GeckoScheduler™.
In order for any companion robot to be utilitarian for family care, it must be a "three-legged milk stool."

GeckoSystems has been developing innovative robotic technologies for over twenty years. It is CEO Martin Spencer's dream to make people's lives better through AI robotic technologies.
Long range AI research initiative:
This company initiative addresses many of the same safety, morality and ethics issues of Google’s advanced DeepMind artificial intelligence project, but from a different perspective.
This AI R&D initiative envisions the design of pseudo-cognitive mobile robotic systems that can monitor and demonstrate understanding of some, not all, but many, specific forms of human activity, in order to "deduce" what common sense behavioral response will benefit the person. Many of those lower level, fundamental needs identified are within the capabilities of GeckoSystems’ AI mobile service robot (MSR) solutions and with the cooperation of person receiving care.
The goal for the pseudo-cognitive MSR is to provide context-adaptive active support, for example, to elderly care receivers and/or to individuals with specific forms of moderate to mild health issues, whether short term or chronic.
The Company believes that integrating multiple forms of different environmental and human physiological and sensing systems will enable beneficially higher levels of proactive autonomy and adaptive interaction and therefore offer a much more compelling value proposition for caregivers and care receivers.
This advanced AI R&D will deliver pseudo-cognitive AI engines that will be able to perform a set of advanced assistive actions currently not offered by present state-of-the-art approaches. Sensor rich MSR’s produce big data requiring deep learning capabilities to achieve reliable predictive analytics to result in beneficial machine intelligence. This is much more difficult to achieve than business enterprise AI engines such as Watson, because the “answers” must be available in a “timely” fashion and in any circumstances encountered by the 7/24 caregiving MSR.
Proactive-autonomy ambulatory required assistance tasks, that is, invoking automatically executed emergent robot behaviors, based on context-specific caree monitoring and situational awareness, including AI initiated approaching of a patient, following them from room to room at a close, but safe, distance to provide timely cooperative assistance whenever and wherever needed (e.g. when fatigue is observed), or waiting in a stand-by mode nearby a care receiver to offer prompt support when and as needed.
By this time, most readers will have realized that these tasks are much more challenging and difficult than those in alleged driverless or self-driving cars, drones, or fetch and/or delivery MSRs.
Major scientific contributions of this research are in, but not limited to, these areas:
A multi-modal AI augmented and merged sensor data analysis/synthesis system that will capture, integrate, process and abstract:
|1. Disparate sensor data clouds such as:|
|a. Machine vision integration to interpret visible and non-visible light|
|b. Range finders|
|iii. Infrared (IR), passive and active|
|iv. and time-of-flight (TOF) depth cameras (range finders)|
|c. Haptic (touch and dead reckoning)|
|d. Sound: speech tonality, cadence, etc.|
|e. Odors such as gas, smoke, etc.|
|f. Position and orientation|
|i. MEMS accelerometer|
|ii. Solid state compasses|
|g. Human physiological sensors regarding human state and activity|
|i. Pulse rate, blood pressure, oxygenation level, blood sugar level, etc.|
…in order to quickly detect, recognize and respond to not uncommon human health states with appropriate, timely semi-professional level like responses.
The integration of the above paradigms and capabilities within a context-aware (machine awareness of the human dynamics and state) a sentient AI robot control architecture, which will incorporate contextual reasoning and planning regarding assistive robot actions and behavior, guiding the robot mechanism to deliver near optimal responses and to provide cost effective proactive, situation-adapted assistance, without necessitating immediate human personal intervention, to the care receiver is of significant benefit to millions of people. Obviously, implicit safety for all participants and users of such advanced machine sentience and autonomy must be ingrained. This is the primary task of this AI research: Safety for human usage in all circumstances, foreseen and unforeseeable.
The company has been working on machine sentience for a long time:
A Path to Robot Companions for Eldercare
An Introduction to the GeckoSuper™
By R. Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems, Inc.
December 16, 2004
While the Japanese, and many other academic institutions have worked on various aspects of creating a robotic companion for family care, none have integrated the multiple behaviors into a single architecture with the ability for the various behaviors to modify and interact in such a way as to allow any form of sentience to emerge. Sentience is used here to mean some beneficial level of common sense as expressed by a combination of computer hardware and advanced artificial intelligence software that is of practical benefit to the care giver and care receiver.
The first basic behavior required of any Mobile Service Robot (MSR) to be of utility is to have the ability to automatically self-navigate, without human control or intervention, in moving among and through crowds of people, i.e. a dynamic environment. This is frequently referred to as a “loose crowd” level of autonomy. GeckoSystems, Inc. (GSI) has developed this suite of AI technologies known as GeckoNav™.
The second basic behavior required to continue the development of a robot companion is a verbal interaction capability, i.e. a non-computer interface control of the MSR. This means that a verbal AI lobe, or engine, (set of behaviors) must perform voice recognition reliably, utilize natural language processing to determine the words and/or phrases said, invoke an meaning (action to be taken) from those predetermined words and phrases using Expert Systems, and then voice synthesis for the MSR to verbalize and/or physically respond to that which it “heard.” GSI has developed this lobe. It is called GeckoChat™.
The third basic behavior required is a sense of time available to all the lobes of GeckoSystems’ MSR’s biological hierarchical system architecture. Simply stated this is the realization of the date and time and whether or not certain tasks need to be performed. These tasks may be physical (as in errand running, patrolling, or following the care receiver about), verbal, or a combination of both. The user (either by, or under the direction of the care giver) must initially program the time sensitive events just as a child must be taught the importance of doing certain tasks at certain times. GSI has developed this behavior. It is called GeckoScheduler™.
A slightly higher level of behavior is simply the MSR staying proximate to its predetermined or designated goal. This can be either be by staying within a few feet of its care receiver in spite of their movement around the home, or by maintaining its patrol in commercial environments while looking for intruders. This is being developed under the nomenclature of GeckoTrak™.
The reader may now realize that many nonsensical behaviors could now arise from such confounding confluences of the foregoing behaviors. For example, the home might be smoke filled, and yet the GeckoScheduler be invoking GeckoChat (to serve as, in combination, a surrogate short-term memory) to verbally remind the care receiver that they need to take certain medication(s) or perform certain medical tests such as blood sugar, heart rate, etc. Therefore, there is a need for a supervisor, or superego, to apply some common sense to this confounding situation. In GSI’s biological hierarchical AI architecture, this is known as the GeckoSuper™. It is the uppermost level of behaviors where an expert system “reasoning engine” resides.
In the GeckoSuper the GSI MSR may be programmed, or “imprinted,” with the primary prerequisites of not allowing humans to come to harm, either by action or inaction, and not allowing itself to be damaged. With some reflection, the reader will understand that the interactions of the few primary, secondary, and upper level behaviors discussed here, give rise to many probable emergent behaviors. Many in the AI community believe that the will, or preprogrammed intent, to protect others and self is core to the emergence of AI machine sentience.
The author understands that the level of sentience initially will be extremely low level. Nonetheless, an MSR for safety, security, and service at a cost-effective price, will enable many thousands of users to enjoy the benefits of a robot companion with only minimal “common sense.”
Personal note to our shareholders from the CEO:
“We have no plans to increase the Authorized Shares, do a reverse split, or restructure GOSY such that the hundreds of GOSY longs are adversely impacted. We will return to Current Information. The AS is presently maxed out due to allegedly unlawful activities by Mr. Neil T. Wallace on behalf of himself and his WWII widowed mother, Bette R. Wallace. (Seemingly a legal veil for her son’s unjust enrichment schemes by deliberately abusing due legal process for unwarranted financial gain.)
Mr. Wallace’s bravado on the internet does not speak the truth much. He is a disgruntled ex-employee who worked for the Company part-time for less than six months and his employment was terminated in 2007. Since then he has made every attempt to destroy GeckoSystems by filing numerous lawsuits and defaming the Company and me on the internet. The only current litigation is between me and Mr. Wallace, not the Company.
Counterclaims were filed against him in the Rockdale County Superior Court and for over a year he evaded answering Discovery under oath regarding those Counterclaims. He was found in Contempt of Court by the judge and fined $500.00 for repeatedly evading answering under oath.
Now the judge has granted me authority to file a Second set of Interrogatories for Mr. Wallace to, once again, answer fully under oath. One of the eight Counterclaims is for RICO (racketeering) which I believe is the reason Mr. Wallace is so reluctant to answer, under oath, the Interrogatories. In other words, Mr. Wallace does not have the legal advantage over me as he would like others to believe. He finds himself in a defensive position again and must abide by the Court’s Order. If he continues his unlawful resistance, he could face more sanctions and perhaps incarceration.
The present RICO counterclaims against Mr. Wallace are by me personally because I am of information and belief that as a legal grifter, Mr. Wallace has gamed due legal process not only in Delaware and but also now Georgia for over ten years, to my personal financial detriment and the loss of millions of dollars in ROI to our hundreds of OTC investors. GeckoSystems, as a legal corporate entity, has no active litigation whatsoever with Mr. Wallace, or any other party or parties at this time, nor expected.” RMS
