By 2030, the World Health Organization (WHO) foresees a worldwide workforce shortfall of healthcare professionals, with dramatic consequences for patients, economies, and communities. Research in assistive robotics has experienced an increasing attention during the last decade demonstrating its utility in the realization of intelligent robotic solutions for healthcare and social assistance, also to compensate for such workforce shortages.

We proposed an original integration of AI-based features, that is, knowledge representation and reasoning and automated planning to 1) define a human-in-the-loop continuous assistance procedure that helps clinicians in evaluating and managing patients and; 2) to dynamically adapt robot behaviors to the specific needs and interaction abilities of patients. The system is deployed in a realistic assistive scenario to demonstrate its feasibility to support a clinician taking care of several patients with different conditions and needs.

Abstract

By 2030, the World Health Organization (WHO) foresees a worldwide workforce shortfall of healthcare professionals, with dramatic consequences for patients, economies, and communities. Research in assistive robotics has experienced an increasing attention during the last decade demonstrating its utility in the realization of intelligent robotic solutions for healthcare and social assistance, also to compensate for such workforce shortages. Nevertheless, a challenge for effective assistive robots is dealing with a high variety of situations and contextualizing their interactions according to living contexts and habits (or preferences) of assisted people. This study presents a novel cognitive system for assistive robots that rely on artificial intelligence (AI) representation and reasoning features/services to support decision-making processes of healthcare assistants. We proposed an original integration of AI-based features, that is, knowledge representation and reasoning and automated planning to 1) define a human-in-the-loop continuous assistance procedure that helps clinicians in evaluating and managing patients and; 2) to dynamically adapt robot behaviors to the specific needs and interaction abilities of patients. The system is deployed in a realistic assistive scenario to demonstrate its feasibility to support a clinician taking care of several patients with different conditions and needs.
