Robots to Guide Visitors through Exhibitions at the National Palace Museum of Korea

- The National Palace Museum of Korea to Develop

AI-powered Exhibition Docents


 

  The National Palace Museum of Korea (Director: Kim Dong-Young) is launching a project to develop artificial intelligence-equipped robots to serve as docents for exhibitions.

 

  The National Palace Museum of Korea is making plans to develop and introduce robots based on advanced technology including artificial intelligence and autonomous mobility to provide exhibition guidance services. This is to be a leading project in the Cultural Heritage Administration’s movement towards a digital transformation of cultural heritage in conjunction with the central government’s efforts at promoting innovation.

 

  The National Palace Museum of Korea is welcoming professional docent robots to enhance the visitor’s experience at the museum using their rich digital resources. The new robot exhibition guides will be adopted to cater for the need of contact-free exhibition tour in the post COVID-19 era.

 

  The robots will be deployed in galleries in December 2021 and will continue to be updated with advancements such as multilingual services (English, Chinese, and Japanese) and immersive content.
