Korea’s Wonderful Platform Integrates ChatGPT into Eldercare Robot

ChatGPT to be integrated into Avadino platform Wonderful Platform South Korea

South Korea-based Wonderful Platform has announced its plans to incorporate ChatGPT services into its various service robots, including companion robots living with elderly patients.

Early last year, the company signed a contract with OpenAI, makers of the generative AI tool ChatGPT, to use GPT3.0 technology with Wonderful’s companion robots, the first company in Korea to offer ChatGPT service robots into hardware devices servicing seniors in healthcare.

When the GPT3.0 is adapted to the robots, it uses conversational AI to collect life log data such as sleep times, activity times, and health status by asking active questions to obtain data from the seniors. Basic functions include medication reminders, music playback, health diagnostics from third-party applications and devices, video calls with family or guardians and emergency call functions to call family, guardians and even emergency services such 911. If ChatGPT is implemented, then the conversational AI would be much more human-like for seniors to interact with the robot, the company said.

With more than 10,000 AI care robots supplied to more than 80 Korean government social welfare departments and healthcare centers in Korea, Wonderful Platform said it plans to be the norm for healthcare for seniors where Avadin (its U.S. robot) can be the guardian for vulnerable elderly groups. Additionally, services will expand with combining the robots with health-related devices, such as blood glucose and pressure monitors, as well as wearables that collect seniors’ health data for analysis.

Wonderful Platform said its U.S. subsidiary has  added GPT3.0 to its B2B and B2C customers as a testbed, and will be promoting expansion of AI care robot services in the future. Both ChatGPT and GPT3.5 will be added to the robot platform to cater to more seniors with specific functions in the future.
