When you pick up TIME Magazine’s November 4, 2019 edition, you will read an incredible story about cutting-edge technology and healthy aging research being led by those who served to benefit all Americans.
The Army Distaff Foundation’s Knollwood Military Life Plan Community in Washington, DC is the primary global test site for the development and deployment of what promises to be the world’s most advanced social robot. In partnership with an internationally-renowned robotics team from Trinity College Dublin, the Army Distaff Foundation is working to develop, test, and apply at Knollwood a socially assistive robot with the potential to transform care delivery and social engagement opportunities for similar communities across the globe.
TIME Magazine saw fit to write an exclusive cover story on this trail-blazing research. I encourage you to read the full story here.
