The state of New York will distribute Israeli robot companions to the homes of more than 800 older adults. The robots are not able to help with physical tasks, but function as more proactive versions of digital assistants like Siri or Alexa — engaging users in small talk, helping contact love ones, and keeping track of health goals like exercise and medication. Scientific studies suggest social robots do “appear to have the potential to improve the well-being of older adults,” but researchers say it’s hard to draw conclusions without wider trials. Should we trial it in Australia? Read more: https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/05/27/ny-state-is-giving-out-hundreds-of-robots-as-companions-for-the-elderly/

Unfortunately, uncleared minefields are still a serious problem in many parts of the world. An Australian developed Magnetic Resonance system by CSIRO and manufactured and distributed by RFC Ambrian is set to allow more efficient land mine detection. Known as MRead, the technology is not affected by other metal in the ground such as shrapnel and for the first time can detect land mines made entirely of plastic. Land mines can be cleared allowing people to return to normal life without the fear of these devices.
