Obviously this is not my area of expertise, but I will say that I have been pulled into some of these discussions because, in Montreal, there was a proposal to introduce a robot into a seniors' home as a way of taking care. That led me down a bit of an investigation into what the effect of this is.
The best place to look at as a parallel is Japan. I think there have been a lot of efforts in the automatization of caregiving in the Japan context, but it largely hasn't been effective, because many of these technologies cost as much to maintain as it would to actually properly resource the caregivers in place.
I think there's a kind of shifting of values, where, again, I think it's targeting the cultural impacts of artificial intelligence. They think the technology is going to do a better job than just paying a nurse or a caregiver properly for that function. I would say that, in anything I have seen, the benefits are overstated compared to the potential, and also that, really, this is something that has to fit within a larger holistic system of care that evaluates even the kinds of benefits—which I'm not saying there isn't—within making sure there are actually proper resources to support our fundamental frontline caregivers.
