REMIND project Summer school
Terje Grimstad, Karde, gave a lecture about Social robots and the engAGE project at the REMIND project Summer school in Artimino in Italy, close to Florence, 18th October 2022. REMIND is an H2020 project about reminding technologies for people with dementia. University of Ulster from Belfast is the coordinator. Many participants from universities in Europe, Korea and Argentine and European businesses were present. Novilunio, an Italian interest organisation from Padova for people dementia, was also present.
We had fruitful discussions about which potential effects social robots may have on the target group. It was agreed that robots will play an increasing role in dementia care, due to an increasing number of people with dementia and lack of health personnel in the coming years.
