The Biomechatronics Laboratory at Imperial College London is recruiting candidates for a research post in social robotics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. This project, Psychosocial Robotic Engagement for Dementia Patients in Smart Environs, is an exciting opportunity for a researcher interested in exploratory research in robotic support of the elderly, in particular to address isolation and health monitoring challenges faced by dementia patients and their care givers today.
The project seeks to extend academic and commercial research by our team to clinically translate robotic cognitive engagement tools for patients with dementia. The focus of the study is to introduce and validate the efficacy of voice agents and interactive social robots to support health monitoring of dementia patients in smart environments. It will be conducted thorough the Dementia Research Institute Care Research and Technology Centre in close collaboration with engineers, computer scientists, and clinical neurologists.
