Technogym partners with IBM to bring artificial intelligence into fitness
World leading wellness company Technogym has has announced a partnership with IBM that will see the Technogym Mywellness cloud platform incorporate the next generation Watson Artificial Intelligence-driven cognitive coaching platform for health and wellness.
The initiative has the goal of creating a ‘human-like’ virtual coach able to interact with people using natural language and to offer them personalised training programs based on their goals and context conditions (such as weather, agenda, health conditions, food intake) in order to enhance a healthier lifestyle.
The integration with IBM Watson’s cognitive computing and IoT technologies will enrich Technogym’s MyWellness platform - the cloud based ecosystem providing fitness users with a fully personalised program and gathering fitness data accessible from both fitness equipment and mobile - with further capabilities of interacting with the user, managing data and evaluating results thanks to a cognitive coach that will guide users while working out.
Wellness and fitness industry operators and personal trainers will also benefit from the new cognitive coaching platform, allowing them to ensure continued assistance through the virtual coach for their clients when they are travelling or training outside the facility.
Technogym founder and Chief Executive Nerio Alessandri explained “our goal has always been to offer our users a personalised training experience via connected equipment, services and content capable of interacting with them, understanding their deep motivation and needs, and delivering results.
“Our collaboration with IBM represents a further step towards the creation of increasingly customised and engaging training for our clients.”
The collaboration further enhances Technogym’s unique digital offerings within the fitness and wellness field, confirming the company’s focus on continuous innovation and technological research.
