According to Schwab, (2016) the 4th industrial revolution began at the turn of this century and builds on the digital revolution. This new era is already changing how we live, work, and communicate. It is reshaping government, education, healthcare, and commerce. In the future, it can also change the things we value and the way we value them. It can change our relationships, our opportunities, and our identities as it changes the physical and virtual worlds we inhabit and even, in some cases, our bodies. In this presentation I will explore the impact that the 4th industrial revolution is having and will have on the health and social care and the urgent need for preparing the workforce to engage and work with socially assistive devices and more specifically socially assistive humanoid robots. I will introduce you to the research I have been conducting for the CARESSES project which aims to develop the first culturally competent robot.
