Global tech company Yango is debuting its AI-driven warehouse robotics and pick-and-place solutions at the Seamless Middle East event, which is currently running in Dubai (May 14-16). The technologies aim to combat the rising fulfillment costs that are burdening the e-commerce, retail, logistics, and manufacturing sectors.

In e-commerce, fulfillment now represents one-third of all operating expenses. Global giant Amazon saw fulfillment costs rise from 31% of net sales in 2021 to 36% in 2023. Yango’s solutions could provide a much-needed remedy to these escalating figures.

At Seamless Middle East, attendees can experience live demonstrations of Yango’s robotic pick-and-place hardware. This technology leverages “advanced computer vision” to allow stationary robots to perform like human operatives while still managing to move 800 items per hour.

Yango has also introduced stock-taking, goods, and pallet-moving solutions to streamline inventory management and fulfillment. The company’s robots can autonomously navigate warehouses and work together with other machinery to get tasks done faster and more accurately.

Alexei Filippov, Head of Global Business Development at Yango Robotics, said: “As fulfillment costs continue to rise, our warehouse robotics solutions come at a crucial time to help businesses not just survive but thrive. Our new robotics pick-and-place platform, mobile warehouse robotics solutions, and other technologies show Yango’s commitment to innovation and efficiency [and] we’re excited to debut [them] at Seamless Middle East”.

Yango is also showcasing further technologies at the exhibition, including autonomous delivery robots and the AI-powered White Label App and AI Shelf Monitoring System for retail applications.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

The AI Assistant in Truecaller screens incoming calls, informing recipients of a caller’s purpose. Based on this information, users can decide whether to answer the call themselves or let the AI Assistant handle it.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.

Azure AI Speech, showcased during the last Build conference, only recently added a personal voice feature that lets people record and replicate voices. Microsoft explained in a blog post, however, that Personal Voice is available on a limited basis and only for specific use cases like voice assistants.

To maintain ethical standards, Microsoft’s Azure AI Speech automatically adds watermarks to AI-generated voices. Additionally, a code of conduct requires companies to obtain full consent from individuals being recorded and prohibits impersonation.
