The motivation to launch the European Conference on the Impact of AI and Robotics (ECIAIR) has come about as a result of the maturing of artificial intelligence and robotics, particularly of the cognitive computing kind, which is producing an unprecedented revolution in the role of work and professionals in society. So this Conference aims to focus not so much on the technology itself, but rather its consequence on knowledge work and society.
The opening keynote presentation is given by Dr Mariano E. Giménez, from the University of Strasbourg, France on the topic of Hybrid Operating Rooms and Image-Guided Surgery, the way to Automation. Then an afternoon screening of the Netflix Film "The Great Hacked" followed by a Q&A. The second day of the conference will open with an address by Dr Mitt Nowshade Kabir, who will talk about Artificial General Intelligence, Consciousness and the Future of AI. The conference will close on Friday with a Panel of Philosophers: What limits should humans set on Artificial Intelligence?
