Can artificial intelligence and robotics help skin cancer prevention through the use of sunscreen?

June 27, 2017

The inventors of HitchBOT, the friendly, traveling robot that delighted fans in Canada and beyond, saw the project as a way to ask the question, "Can robots trust humans?" Now they're teaming up again with a physician to ask a different question: "Can robots help humans to change?" It's a project that's part of a new collaboration between IBM and Hamilton Health Sciences - a two-year, first-of-its-kind clinical trial with medical patients about whether "social robotics" and AI can make a difference in self-regulation for behavioural change. They're focusing on one of the cheapest and most effective healthcare regimes - skin cancer prevention through the use of sunscreen. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/hitchbot-creators-to-study-whether-robots-can-help-patients-change-behaviour-1.4178333#utm_sguid=146258,ff86580c-eac7-f705-30b6-f5b191f2ef7c
