Can the UK be world leaders in social care technology?

Tony Prescott

Globally, the proportion of people aged 60 or over was just 8% in 1950 but this is projected to rise to 20% by 2050. In many European countries, and in Asian economies including Korea, Japan, and China, the proportion of people age 60+ will be approaching 40% by 2050. As a global business and growth opportunity, assistive robots and services present significant possibilities.

Software Update: 171012 (and a quick update from CqR Labs).

Ben Mitchinson

Since MIRO was launched into the market place, the team at Consequential Labs has been working tirelessly (well…) to keep the software updated, ironing out bugs as they have been reported and adding a little additional functionality here and there. Dr Ben Mitchinson (or Mitch as we like to call him here) talks about software update 171012 and the many things that team CqR Labs have been busy working on.

Roboticist of the Week: Joseph Daly

Consequential Robotics

This week we caught up with Joseph Daly, a PhD student based at Bristol Robotics Laboratory. Joe has a background in psychology, which initially sounds unrelated to robotics, but is becoming increasingly relevant as robots start to share spaces with human beings. Most recently, he looked at people’s willingness to help a robot in need depending on its emotional behaviour.
