Today, IEEE unveiled "Generation AI 2020: Health, Wellness and Technology in a Post-COVID World." According to the survey, more than three-quarters (79%) of parents in India agree that if they had the means, they would adopt a robot “nanny” to help take care of their children while working remotely from home, running errands or when otherwise occupied. A majority (66%) of parents globally agree they would adopt a robot “nanny” to help care for their children.
This global study reveals the confidence Millennial parents with Generation Alpha children (under 11 years-old) in the U.S., U.K., India, China and Brazil may have in AI and emerging technologies for the health and wellness of their families. The survey captures the following aspects:
Robotics and childcare during work from home
