Buddy: for continuous independent living.

The Social Buddy Foundation explores AI technology to improve self-reliance and prevent loneliness for elder and more frail members of society. Currently, many applications already exist to support older persons in their daily lives. However, interaction abilities are often limited due to poor voice feedback, or difficulties with touch sensitivity due to physical restrictions caused by aging.

Researching the application of e-health in senior care.

Social-buddy bases its research and application of functionalities on existing studies in healthcare and tech, to provide an all-round solution for continuous independent living. This includes working closely with the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, enabling us to apply face and pose detection.


Innovative AI

With the use of cutting-edge AI techniques we’ve applied assistive pose & face detection; for when touch is too cumbersome, responsive messaging & reminders; to support daily tasks, and connected standard functionalities on smart devices. This includes Google Home, voice & video calling, and more. 


What makes Social-Buddy different?

Where most robots and AI’s are created to appeal to a mass audience or a specific corporate niche, Social-Buddy is tailored for senior healthcare. To relieve caregivers as well as improve and maintain independence and socialization for as long as possible.
