Carebot Alice leaves the laboratory to visit Mrs. Remkes, Mrs. Schellekens-Blanke, and Mrs. van Wittmarschen, each in their own house. The three women are getting on in age and are therefore exceptionally suited for the services of Alice, who has been developed by VU research group SELEMCA.
They try to discover, with the help of community nurses and family, how ‘sociobot’ Alice should talk and react to stem the effects of loneliness on older women. The outcome of the experiment is surprising for all involved.
