Many wealthier, developed nations are facing the challenge of an aging population. This brings with it the need for innovative solutions to care for and support the increasing number of elderly citizens. In Japan, the goal is to have robots take over some of the burden of eldercare by acting as assistants in hospitals, performing tasks such as remote medical diagnosis support and in-home cleaning and caretaking, and even providing emotional support. Two critical elements are necessary to make this a reality: the ability to build robots quickly and inexpensively using 3D printing, coupled with artificial intelligence software capable of deep predictive learning and rapid, ecofriendly computation that allows for real-time responses to human interactions, thus ensuring the safety of users and providing a capable, effective robotic companion.
During this webinar, our expert speakers will:
- Introduce the audience to the fundamental challenges to, and solutions for, creating humanoid robots for the home environment
- Describe the latest 3D printing technology, which enables simultaneous printing of metal and plastic, essential for producing printed electronic circuits on plastic substrates
- Discuss the future of humanoid robotics using the latest high-end computation technology.
This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes.
