South Korean AI specialist company Wonderful Platform is making waves in the healthcare industry with its latest offering of AI care and companion robots for single living elderly. This technology incorporates OpenAI’s conversation artificial intelligence (AI) service, ChatGPT, to provide human-like conversational AI for seniors to interact with.
After the success of their educational e-learning robot, Coding-K, Wonderful Platform is introducing Dasom-K (Avadin for US clients), which applies ChatGPT to the company’s AI care and companion robots for single living elderly. With this addition, Wonderful Platform aims to become the norm for healthcare for seniors, where Avadin can be the guardian for vulnerable elderly groups.
Wonderful Platform signed a contract with OpenAI early last year and began developing services using GPT3.0 implemented to their companion robots. This makes them the first company in Korea and globally to offer ChatGPT service robots by applying the conversational GPT3.0 into hardware devices servicing seniors in healthcare.
When GPT3.0 is adapted to robots, it uses conversational AI to collect life log data such as sleep times, activity times, and health status by asking active questions to obtain data from seniors. Basic functions include medication reminders, music playback, health diagnostics with third-party applications and devices, video calls with family or guardians, emergency call functions to call family or guardians and even emergency services such as 911.
With more than 10,000 AI care robots supplied to over 80 Korean government social welfare departments and healthcare centres in Korea, Wonderful Platform plans to expand its services by combining the robots with health-related devices such as blood glucose and pressure monitors, as well as all wearables to collect senior health data for analysis.
Wonderful Platform’s US subsidiary has been supplying GPT3.0 added to B2B and B2C customers as a testbed and will be promoting the global expansion of AI care robot services in the future. ChatGPT and GPT3.5 will also be added to the robot platform to cater to more seniors with specific functions that seniors need.
With Wonderful Platform’s ChatGPT-powered companion robots, seniors can now have a companion that can assist with daily tasks and provide much-needed social interaction, contributing to their overall health and well-being.
