PARO is a therapeutic robot developed by the Japan National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. Although he looks like a cute harp seal, he is a complex piece of technology that has been shown to provide improvement in patients’ psychological, physical and social well-being. Lynn Miyauchi, Cultural Affairs and Public Outreach for the Consulate General of Japan in Seattle, will present on PARO’s history and science, and provide a hands-on demonstration of his many features.
