Robotics and artificial intelligence are rapidly becoming a part of mainstream society, especially in manpower-lean industries like F&B, hospitality and logistics. The eldercare industry has also seen an emergence of robots that can improve physical rehabilitation and mobility, or provide personal assistance and even companionship. One thing is clear – robotic innovations for seniors are smarter and more personalized than ever before.

What is the potential of robots to not only enhance care giving for seniors, but also increase their independence, mental and emotional well being, and improve their quality of life? Join us for our upcoming seminar on 11 October (Thursday), as three leading practitioners share their insights on this emerging industry and what lies in store in the near future.
