SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, March 8, 2024 – A robot dog keeps company with an elderly person who lives alone and calls 911 if an emergency occurs. A robot takes care of elderly patients in the nursing home, assisting with their defecation and cleaning. An AI robot plays Go with bored elderly patients. This is not a story from the far distant future. It is present in the smart care services of Seoul.

On March 6, the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced plans for elderly care services. In response to the super-aged society era, the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) will incorporate cutting-edge technology such as AI, robots, and IoT devices into its elderly care services, which are mainly dependent on manual labor.
