  • In the U.S., 51% of all prescription medication is taken incorrectly, causing 125,000 deaths each year. Among the elderly, the incorrect taking of medication accounts for 35-40% of all hospital admissions. Over 23% of all new resident admissions to assisted living, independent care, nursing home and skilled nursing facilities are a direct result of improper medication usage.
  • • Has a diurnal rythym of morning, afternoon, and night • Five kinds of sensors: tactile, light, audition, temperature, and posture • Can recognize light and dark • Can feel being stroked and the amount of pressure • Understands when it is being held • Can recognize the direction of sound • Recognizes its name, greetings, and praise • Remembers interactions and adapts • Imitates the voice of a real baby seal • Expresses feelings though noises, body movements, and facial expressions The first prototype robots capable of developing emotions as they interact with their human caregivers and expressing a whole range of emotions have been created by Dr. Lola Cañamero at the University of Hertfordshire, in collaboration with a consortium of universities and robotic companies across Europe. These robots differ from others in the way that they form attachments, interact and express emotion through bodily expression. Developed as part of the interdisciplinary project FEELIX GROWING (Feel, Interact, eXpress: a Global approach to development with Interdisciplinary Grounding), funded by the European Commission and coordinated by Dr. Cañamero, the robots have been developed so that they learn to interact with and respond to humans in a similar way as children learn to do it, and use the same types of expressive and behavioural cues that babies use to learn to interact socially and emotionally with others.
