【每日生活】当我们老了,陪伴我们走到最后的是否会是机器人?(双语)

Companion robots are playing an ever-increasing role in helping busy people look after the elderly and children.

在帮助忙碌的人们照顾老人和小孩这方面,护理机器人正在发挥着越来越重要的作用。

With an aging population and an increasing labor shortage, the demand for companion robots for elder care and children’s companions is on the rise.

随着人口的老龄化和劳动力人口的短缺,对能照料老人、陪伴小孩的护理机器人的需求正在增大。

Xiaoyuzaijia is an intelligent companion robot produced by Zaijia.com, a Beijing-based startup engaged in internet hardware and intelligent home appliances businesses. It specializes in security monitoring, human-computer emotional communication and entertainment functions.

“小鱼在家”是由Zaijia.com生产的一款智能护理机器人,Zaijia.com是北京一家从事于互联网硬件和只能家电业务的新公司。这款机器人专门用于安防监控、人机情感交流和娱乐。

If the elderly people are ill at home, the robot can bring medicine and water. The robot will open the door when the guest comes. It can even tell a story, sing a song and play chess.

如果老人生病在家,这款机器人可以端水递药。有客人来时,这款机器人也可以打开房门。它甚至还可以讲故事、唱歌和下棋。

The number of elderly people aged 60 and above reached more than 222 million in 2015, accounting for 16.2 percent of the total population, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. It is estimated that the number will reach 243 million in 2020.

据中国国家统计局数据显示,2015年中国60岁及以上人群数量超过2.22亿人,占总人口比例约16.2%。据估计这一数字将在2020年时达到2.43亿人。

Song Chenfeng, founder and CEO of Zaijia, said: "The robot is equipped with a monitoring camera and other hardware for facial and voice recognition.

小鱼在家创始人兼CEO宋晨枫(音)表示说:“这款机器人配备了一个监控摄像头和其他以供面部和语音识别的硬件。”

"Family members could also connect their smartphones with the robot. When the elderly fall or the children cry at home, the robot will send messages to inform other family members," he said.

他说道:“家庭成员还能够把他们的手机和机器人连接起来。当家里老人摔倒或小孩哭的时候,机器人可以给家庭成员们发信息告知他们。”

"The companion robot should be an important ’blue sea’ in the intelligent household robot market. Xiaoyuzaijia aims at white-collar people who are busy with their work and spend less time accompanying their family members. It builds a bridge among family members and satisfies the emotional communications needs of modern people," said Song.

宋晨枫说道:“护理机器人应该是智能家庭机器人市场重要的‘蓝海’。小鱼在家针对的是那些忙于工作、没有多少时间陪伴家人的白领。它在家人之间建起了一座桥梁、满足了现代人的情感沟通需求。”

Yuan Wenhui, chairman of Zaijia, said the company will offer personalized service in the family healthcare and children’s education sectors, based on big data algorithms, aiming to be an indispensable intelligent family housekeeper in the future.

据小鱼在家总裁袁文慧(音)表示称,该公司将基于大数据在家庭医疗保健、以及儿童教育方面提供个性化服务,目标是成为未来必不可少的智能家庭管家。

Statistics from the International Federation of Robotics show that the market demand for service robots will boom in the next three years, with the market scale reaching $46 billion.

据国际机器人联合会的统计数据显示,未来三年市场对服务机器人的需求将会激增,市场规模将达到460亿美元。
