Interview on the impact of digitalisation on social services

Today I was interviewed as an expert in the field of assistive robotics for a European-wide study on the impact of digitalisation on social services (conducted by Eurofund in cooperation of VVA and TNO).

I was asked in a structured interview for my views about digitalisation in social services in Austria with respect to robots in elderly care. Besides giving an overview on the state of the art of relevant robotic developments in this area, I above all tried to stress the relevance of user-centered development involving several stakeholders, not only primary user, but also secondary users and institutions such as insurances.

I will update this post as soon as the project report is available.
