CARESSES, the Flower that Taught Robots about Culture
Publication/Creation DateSeptember 4 2018
DescriptionCARESSES is a 3 -years international, multidisciplinary project whose goal is to design the first robots that can assist older people and adapt to the culture of the individual they are taking care of. The robots will help the users in many ways including reminding them to take their medication, encouraging them to keep active, helping them keep in touch with family and friends. Each action will be performed with attention to the older person’s customs, cultural practices and individual preferences. These robots will be the first to be equipped with "cultural competence".
