Another article on the emerging use of robots (more properly androids?) in real-life medical situations.
This link talks about
and shows "Grace," a highly realistic android-nurse:https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/19/asia/grace-hanson-robotics-android-nurse-hnk-spc-intl/index.html
It notes:"Designed as an assistant for doctors, Grace is equipped with sensors, including a thermal camera to detect a patient's temperature and pulse, to help doctors diagnose illness and deliver treatments."
"The android is a companion for patients, too. Specializing in senior care, Grace speaks three languages -- English, Mandarin, and Cantonese -- and can socialize and conduct talk therapy."
"Robots like Grace are intended as a support for medical professionals rather than a replacement."
"Grace's launch comes in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic when there has been increased demand for telehealth solutions and contactless care."
"Hanson Robotics says it will begin mass-producing robots, including Sophia and Grace, at the end of 2021."
"Grace" in the above video still has that robotic "dazed" look, and its movements are still too halting to convince anyone that it's really a human, but it's getting close, and presumably those sorts of deficiencies will improve as the technology continues to develop.
Someday we may find ourselves in a doctor's office exam room, talking as comfortably with "Grace" as we would with a real nurse.
O brave new world that has such "people" in it!
