I mean, who would think that the children would be more efficient in exploiting the IoT than adults. As you see, the next upcoming generation is good with gadgets, particularly smart devices. Within a limited time span, they can search every part of the smart device to see how it functions and start exploiting them for their own need.

This bot will certainly have educational assistance qualities as well. It is a new an upcoming idea that startups are developing. You need not be shocked if AI will be teaching your children education. The future has lots of hopes for children and if used in an effective way, this tool or application can certainly be used to complete all your academic work.
