An estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with dementia, resulting in more than $1 trillion each year in healthcare costs. Artificial emotional intelligence (AEI) technology developer BPU Holdings has been researching methods to reduce the complications associated with the disease. Its senior virtual assistant (SeVA) technology utilizes computer-simulated emotion to provide a new level of support for dementia patients to mitigate their pain. In doing so, the technology is expected to reduce treatment costs in the millions of dollars globally.
