Autom: A robot who’s a personal weight loss coach

John Moe Dec 16, 2011

Meet a robot who can keep you on your diet and exercise plan

From the website:

Autom™ is a personal weight loss coach who learns about and adapts to you over time. No two conversations are alike and the more she learns about you, the more she customizes her feedback advice to keep you motivated on your diet. These features and the relationship she builds with you make her more effective than any other weight loss program you’ve tried. Not only will she help you lose weight, she’ll make sure you keep it off.
