Scientists like Nadia Magnenat Thalmann at Switzerland's University of Geneva think artificial intelligence (AI)-powered social robots could help care for the sick and aged in the future.

Thalmann served as a model for Nadine, an android that produces human-like gestures and expressions.

The conversational robot talked, sang, and played bingo with residents at a Singapore nursing facility.

Thalmann said a recent upgrade with the GPT-3 AI model improved Nadine's ability to express more complex ideas.

Nadine was among the robots showcased at an International Telecommunication Union-sponsored conference in Geneva to highlight human-AI collaboration.
