Hero was born out of its founders' passion for artificial intelligence: Giuseppe Palestra and Giuseppe Lorizzo. Both of them believe in two things: the importance of artificial intelligence to improve people's lives and the possibility to create something beautiful in the south of Italy.
Hero is an Artificial Intelligence software development company specialized in social robotics and digital healthcare. We believe in using Artificial Intelligence for better living. Therefore, Hero is one of the first to have developed an innovative framework. More specifically, a framework based on AI and human-machine interaction for the recognition and analysis of human behaviour. As a result, everyday we work for a single principle: the improvement of living conditions through the use of AI.
Researches have shown that Social Robotics could be a promising method for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) treatment. That is precisely why we have developed artificial intelligence-based software for autistic childen therapy. ASD subjects often performed better with a robot partner rather than a human partner. Therefore, robots provide therapists and researchers a means to connect with autistic subjects in an easier way.
According to ISTAT data, the share of the European population over the age of 65 has increased from 16% in 2001 to 21% in 2020, in Italy this percentage reaches 23%. In addition, the median age of the population has risen from 38 to 44 in Europe, 47 for Italy, which becomes the first country in Europe and the second in the world in terms of median age. Health systems are responding to these needs with policies aimed at humanization and personalization of care pathways that, to be properly implemented, require constant feedback on the health status of patients. That is the reason we developed a software to speed up some procedures, in order to reduce the work overload of health operators, and to make them easily accessible, even from home.
