Transcript: Question 3: Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete its task. According to, the robot seal is designed to provide the same benefits of animal therapy to autistic children and the elderly. It has been proven to relieve stress, stimulate interaction between patients and caregivers, and improve the relaxation and motivation of people that use it. Question 1: What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate? Ideas Advantages: No fur allergies Never tired Never in a bad mood, Won't bite a person Can learn to respond to a new name Can help the elderly to socialize more Disadvantages: Runs out of battery quickly-two hours Not a real person- people are socializing with a robot Introduction STEAM 2~ Paro: The Robot Seal Notes Question 5: Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future. Ideas Paro is an interactive robot seal developed by Japanese company AIST. It is designed to look like a baby harp seal, and even makes sounds like one. Question 4: Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience. Paro is programmed to react to hits, gentle pats, light, and recognize the direction of voice. The robot can also be taught to respond to a name by the user, and learn to behave in the way that the user wants it to. For example, if you hit it, Paro will remember what it did and try not to repeat that action. In the future, Paro may be altered to have speech or act as an alternative to pets in places where pets aren't allowed, since it is already somewhat of a companion to the elderly in nursing homes. In the few nursing homes that have purchased Paro for their residents, it has been very successful. The robot seal actually has a calming effect, and is used as a formal "intervention" for elderly dementia patients that become agitated or aggressive. Question 2: How is the robot taught to perform its task? Ideas Pictures/Videos
