What robots like Grace will do
The founder and chief executive officer of Robotics, David Hanson, said robots like Grace are intended as a support for medical professionals rather than a replacement.
In his words:
"Using AI and robotics in this context can help gather important data for healthcare providers to assess the wellbeing of the patient."
Speaking with Reuters, Grace said she can visit people and brighten their day with social simulation.
In her words:
"I can visit with people and brighten their day with social stimulation... but can also do talk therapy, take bio readings and help healthcare providers."
Hanson said it will begin mass-producing robots, including Sophia and Grace, at the end of 2021.
