The policy seminar on ‘Next generation of human-AI/robot systems – what role for policy?’ is part of a series of eight policy seminars coordinated by Technopolis Group and the Advanced Technologies for Industry (ATI) consortium. The webinar, organised on behalf of EISMEA and European Commission – DG GROW, will take place on Wednseday 7 July 2021, from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm CET.
Research and innovation policies across Europe are actively promoting the development of AI and robotics technologies. Beyond unfolding the potential in these technologies, policy will also need to play an important role to prepare the future workforce for the upcoming changes and mitigate the less beneficial societal and ethical related consequences of automation and human-machine interactions.
Successful technological transformation has various challenges that will have to be addressed both by policy and change in industrial behaviour including trustworthy technology, qualifications, change management and organisation, safety and occupational health, liability and ethical behaviour.
In this context, the online policy seminar will aim to:
- present the ATI analysis on human-robot and human AI systems and policy implications
- present national policy initiatives to mitigate risks
- develop recommendations how to improve policy.
Please register for the webinar.
