Transcultural Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Health and Social Care provides healthcare professionals with a deeper knowledge of the incredible opportunities brought by the emerging field of AI robotics. In addition, it provides robotic researchers with the point of view of healthcare professionals to understand what the healthcare sector - as well as the market - really needs from robotics technology. By doing so, it fills an important gap between both fields in order to leverage new developments and collaborative work in favor of patients globally.

The authors of the book have been engaged in the development of a socially assistive humanoid AI robot able to respond to people from different cultural backgrounds. It is aimed at the non-technical reader, especially health and social care professionals, and explains in a simple way the technological principles applied in the development of socially assistive humanoid AI robots (SAHR), the values which guide such developments, the ethics related to them and the research approaches used in the field, with a focus on achieving a culturally competent SAHR. It offers information and practically based guidance to support readers' development of transcultural robotic competencies to enable them to effectively integrate the SAHRs within their place of work and within their teams.
