Personalizing Elder Care With Intuition Robotics And ‘ElliQ’ July – 22, 2019 Seoul, Korea – (Techreleased) – The future of human-AI machine interactions is arriving quickly thanks to advances in deep learning, a form of machine learning that is inspired by the way neurons in our brains are organized.

One example of the future of robotics is ElliQ, an empathetic robotic companion, designed by Intuition Robotics, a Samsung NEXT portfolio company, that is featured in the End of the Beginning video series. This smart robot has cognitive abilities designed to provide comfort and security for elderly people who wish to live on their own.

Intuition Robotics recognized the needs of this growing population of older adults and has designed a robot companion to help people “age in place” at home rather than at an assisted living facility.

Aging in place

Living alone presents a number of challenges for the elderly, such as the possibility of missing meals and medication, becoming injured, and enduring loneliness.

Headquartered in Israel, Intuition Robotics is part of an impressive roster of companies Samsung NEXT has invested in that are leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Eyal Miller, Samsung NEXT’s managing director for Tel Aviv, met co-founder Dor Skuler when the company was still in its earliest stages. He was interested in the way ElliQ could use human-robotic interaction to improve the lives of the elderly.

“I found Dor to be super passionate about solving the growing problem of the lonely aging population, who in most cases would like to stay at home and be independent, connected to their loved ones by using sophisticated tech and AI,” Miller said.

All five of these qualities come together to give ElliQ the unique ability to offer an engaging and authentic social interaction with the user.

What’s Next for ElliQ?

Since Samsung NEXT made its investment in the company, Intuition Robotics introduced a beta trial in California and Florida, received a “Best of Innovation” award in the Smart Home category at CES 2018, and launched consumer pre-orders for ElliQ earlier this year.

As ElliQ gains adoption and begins working with more seniors, it will increasingly get better at meeting their individual needs. Along the way, Intuition Robotics’ AI assistant could become a model for how humans and machines will interact in the future.
