MetadataShow full item record
Introduction: This review aims to examine how artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic technologies can enhance quality of life (QOL) outcomes in persons living with dementia (PLD). Methods: A systematic literature search was conducted in Medline via Ovid, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health, and IEEE Xplore was performed in November 2020. Results: Ten articles were found to be eligible for inclusion. To date, the most well studied application of robots and AI for improvement of QOL outcomes for PLD are robotic pets. Discussion: The use of AI and robots for improving QOL outcomes in PLD offer promise as they are non-invasive, cost-effective, and can be deployed in a variety of clinical and community settings.
