The CARESSES project on the BBC


Progetto Caresses

CARESSES is a joint European-Japanese project that aims to create, for the first time, an assistance robot with cultural competence that can work alongside relatives and personal care workers and understand the preferences, habits and cultural customs of the person being assisted.

This important project, coordinated by Prof. Antonio Sgorbissa of the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS) of UniGe, was recently featured in a BBC news report (minute 1.13 of the video at the first useful link).
