Robots That Care: Socially Assistive Robotics and the Future of Work and CareSpeaker: Maja Mataric´ – South Pasadena, CA, United States
Topic(s): Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing
The nexus of advances in robotics, NLU, and machine learning has created opportunities for personalized robots. The current pandemic has both caused and exposed unprecedented levels of health & wellness, education, and training needs worldwide. Socially assistive robotics has the potential to address those and longer-standing care needs through personalized and affordable support that complements human care.
This talk will discuss human-robot interaction methods for socially assistive robotics that utilize multi-modal interaction data and expressive and persuasive robot behavior to monitor, coach, and motivate users to engage in health, wellness, education and training activities. Methods and results will be presented that include modeling, learning, and personalizing user motivation, engagement, and coaching of healthy children and adults, stroke patients, Alzheimer's patients, and children with autism spectrum disorders, in short and long-term (month+) deployments in schools, therapy centers, and homes. Research and commercial implications and pathways will be discussed.
