Help Me

All residents of long term care homes can summon help for something that a person can no more do for themselves. Until now that help arrives with a human but what will happen when it is a robot that arrives?

Now or the near future I find that robotic help is unlikely though not augmented human help. Some augmented help is already in common use with the various forms of powered lifts that are used.

True that robot help is regularly used on automotive production lines where repetition is common but I believe that a routine task in a long term care home is much more difficult. Rooms are often different and so is the placing of beds.

All true till 2018. Not so true in the near future where “Life 3.0” is well presented jn a book by Max Tegmark. (Being like Winnie The Pooh, of small brain with an insatiable curtiosity I have to read the book several times to grasp the full meaning). I did learn that we needs’be very careful.
