Evolution and Sony

Evolution Robotics software to be licensed by Sony Corporation Robot Division.

Update: Sony has a press release, “ Sony Launches Third Generation AIBO Entertainment Robot” that mentions what they're using Evolution's technology for.

In addition to increased voice recognition capabilities, which allow the robot to understand approximately180 voice commands, the new model comes equipped with a newly developed visual pattern recognition technology so it can identify 15 credit card sized AIBO Cards that issue commands, change settings and modes. Furthermore, with this technology, the ERS-7 is able to find its Energy Station and recharge itself when its battery runs low.

Does this have relation to the fact that Sony just announced that AIBO #3 is going to be called "ERS-7" ?

Nope, that's just a coincidence.
