Arts and Crafts Session and Robot Presentation
September 5, 2019
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
American Heritage Credit Union’s President & CEO, Bruce Foulke, and Senior Vice President of Business Development, Dorian Smith, presented NAO, an interactive emotional support robot, to Douglas Hock, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
NAO is a robot designed to use artificial intelligence to improve the healthcare experience for patients and families at CHOP. NAO has the ability to sing, dance, speak multiple languages, and engage intelligently with those who interact with it. CHOP initially plans to use the robot as a welcoming tool, one that will regularly participate in the hospital’s music therapy program and live television shows. Soon, it will participate in a Bingo program, calling out the numbers and announcing the names of children who win. CHOP has plans in the future to use NAO for bedside visits, helping to motivate children to participate in activities or complete therapy sessions.
