Tech Designed to Help Assistive Robots Work More Closely with Patients

Artificially intelligent (AI) systems are continuously improving their understanding of physical human activities such as running, jumping, and biking. Yet, much of people’s lives are spent resting in bed. 

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Stanford University have developed an AI-enabled smart bed and synthetic data set to study people at rest. The data set and smart bed are aimed at improving assistive robotics capabilities for people with disabilities, older adults, or hospital patients where people often require assistance in bed.
