New technologies for seniors

Message  Admin le Ven 24 Juil - 12:43

Often accused video games to be the source of many evils of our society. The game Grand Theft Auto V subject of much debate. It is also known that the practice of these games are still little known effects on our brain. They seem to be very beneficial and there are many retirement homes that are starting to be equipped.

Hi Florent,

Thanks for your message.
Yes I read articles about video games as good for senior brains.
I think that any activity is good: physical to maintain muscles and organs, mental to keep synapsis and connections active.

Another useful aspect of technology for seniors are the robots of assistance to help them in their daily lives. Still in the prototype stage, they avoid hospitalization or nursing home placament. It's called the die of the "silver economy".
Those currently functional, it is the company of robots that bloom in the nursing home (upscale)

Thanks for you message Florent.

When woman-shape for robots? scratch

> the die ... la filière
Florent, as far as I know you misused the word "die" as this meaning is very specilic: in technology when people are manufacturing a screw.
I guess the word you should have used is "field".

A woman-shape for robots already exists and is fully functional: it is called "sexbot"!!
From an ethical point of view, the concept of a robot programmed for sex is a controversial subject. On the one hand, some robotics researchers claim that sexbots could be a real blessing for some people, like those who have a disability that prevents them from having physical relations with other people. They also argue that sexbots would benefit the world as they could lead to the end of prostitution. But on the other hand, providers of social morality (and those who generally think that people already spend enough time to use their smartphones) fear that the robotic sex lead to a deterioration of human relationships at all levels.

Sorry about that, I don't get you anyway. So what do you mean exactly, Gérard?

I translate "woman-shape for robor" as "robot d'apparence féminine" ... is that right?

Yes Florent; I was not referring to only sex though, I was just thinking of a nice female face as w can see for hotel welcome desks these days.

Florent,

I spoke with Krystyna about this and she definitely said "die" was not the right word. INsted of "field" she suggested "realm" or "domain", then she chose "sector".
