  • AI-powered robots hold great promise for educational and therapeutic purposes. They socially engage through verbal and human-like interaction with people having physical, cognitive or social disabilities, learning and reacting to their behavior, and enhancing their quality of life. 

    Despite the considerable untapped potential of assistive service robots to support humans, inappropriate implementations could increase social isolation, reduce independence and companionship, make users feel as if they are under surveillance, and divert attention from potential serious health problems. In addition, autonomy, trust and interaction challenges remain to be solved. 

    Discover the innovations behind socially assistive robots that are providing therapy and personalized care through social rather than physical interaction, as a useful complement to the irreplaceable human contact for personal assistance. 

    This live event includes a 15-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community
