Persuasive Intent
This release explains Jibo's expanded ability to educate, interact, and learn.  The is an interesting artifact becasue it demonstrates how Jibo as an invention is evolving. The marketing materials claim, "As a social robot, the way we interact with Jibo is important. Given a daily reason to interact with Jibo, in this case to learn a new word the user might not have known, makes Jibo's conversations more versatile. At the moment, Jibo is able to provide headlines of news stories but lacks in-depth coverage. Expanding on this, in addition to providing various avenues of learning, Jibo could become as much an educational tool as he is a means of achieving social interaction."
