Age of the caring robot (Australia)

Actually, for long-time Telecare Aware readers, the main story in this item will not be the robots, but the ‘Assistive Independent Systems’ in development by Tasmanian clinical psychologist Brad Freeman who is aiming to “use new internet-based communications technologies to empower family friends and carers to support aged people in their own home”. You will hear more of this later, I suspect. Read the Canberra Times story here.
