Presents user-friendly knowledge on socially assistive humanoid AI robots for health and social care
- Presents user-friendly and stage-by-stage information to help readers appreciate how AI and robots work and how they can be integrated in their work environments
- Explains why AI and socially assistive robotics need to be culturally competent
- Helps reduce readers’ fears and change negative prejudices they may have about robots as a relevant tool for health and social care
- Written by experts in AI robotics and the creators of transcultural health/social robotics
- Informed by the largest trial conducted with real patients
Transcultural Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Health and Social Care provides health and social care professionals with a deeper understanding of the incredible opportunities brought by the emerging field of AI robotics. In addition, it provides robotic researchers with the point-of-view of healthcare professionals to understand what the health and social care sector – as well as the market – really needs from robotics technology. By doing so, the book fills an important gap between both fields in order to leverage new developments and collaborative work in favor of global patients.
The book is aimed at the non-technical reader, especially health and social care professionals, and explains in a simple way the technological principles applied in the development of socially assistive humanoid robots (SAHR), the values which guide such developments, the ethics related to them, and research approaches in the field, with a focus on achieving a culturally competent SAHR.
