(ChannelNewsAsia.Singapore)  Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, Singapore’s Minister-in-charge of the Smart Nation Programme Office, says the personal, general-purpose robots will revolutionize the way such technologies feature in people’s lives. He made the comments at the opening panel discussion of this year’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Hacking Medicine – a weekend-long hackathon aimed at finding solutions to improve healthcare and eldercare through the use of personal robotics.
“This revolution of the personal general-purpose robot – capable of sensing, processing and doing things, would be even bigger than the revolution that was brought about in the last 30 years by the personal computer,” said Dr Balakrishnan, to an audience of around 160 participants.”
