Field Testing of National Cheng Kung University's AI Nursing Assistant Earns High Praise from Nurses
Nursing staff shortages, long working hours, and heavy workloads are significant issues. Wang Jhing-Fa (王駿發) is an emeritus Professor from the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU).

The robots feature environmental navigation, and meal delivery logistics; while the software systems for computers and mobile phones offer drug identification, interactive patient dialogues, and contactless physiological measurements, totaling eight functions. These innovations have been tested for over a year in Ward 8A of NCKU Hospital.
