Hanson Robotics, the creator of Sophia the Robot, is introducing Grace the robot as a robotic nursing assistant to transform the senior care market in 2022 and beyond. Devoted to taking care of the sick and elderly, Grace is a social robot that is capable of giving therapy sessions and providing social stimulation in several languages, including English, Mandarin and Cantonese.
The human-like robot was developed with the aid of artificial intelligence solutions firm Singularity Studio and the bot is equipped with heat-sensitive sensors and a camera to read patients’ temperatures and pulses. Although Grace is not intended to replace vital frontline workers, the robot has the potential to collect valuable data and make the lives of nurses and doctors easier.
