Robots and the Future of Welfare Services (ROSE)

Robots and the Future of Welfare Services (ROSE)

Two parallel revolutions are currently taking place in postindustrial societies including Finland: 1) enormous growth in the demand for welfare and health services and 2) the rise of new generation cognitive robots.

In the ROSE project we focus on the intersection of the two revolutions and the potential they create. Robots have gained more cognitive functions and improved safety, which has made it possible to use robots for providing completely new types of services.

While service robots have great potential for health and welfare, the application area is challenging due to centrality of ethical and social issues and the strong role of legislation. To reap benefits, changes will be needed at all levels of the individual-services-society axis, where societal changes and ethical and legislative questions will play different roles and weights. However, there is tremendous potential for new technological and, in particular, service innovations that combine human and cognitive robot skills.
