Baymax, Is That You?

A robot powered by artificial intelligence has the potential to improve health care—but can it address other social, economic and political questions too? In an essay published in The McGill International Review, writer Kara Anderson speculates that it can.

Among other solutions, a personal health robot could help meet the demand in developed countries to reduce health costs—and staff—while maintaining a high quality of care. An intelligent and efficient personal health robot could also provide more economical care for the disabled and elderly, and potentially help governments deliver on the promise of universal health care.
