The policy seminar on ‘Next generation of human-AI/robot systems – what role for policy?’ is part of a series of 8 policy seminars organised within the Advanced Technologies for Industry (ATI) project commissioned by EISMEA and the European Commission – DG GROW. The project provides a systematic monitoring of technological trends and reliable, up-to-date data on advanced technologies to properly support the implementation of policies and initiatives and finally promote a competitive European industry.
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
- identify challenges not yet addressed and point out at policy gaps
- develop recommendations how to improve policy.
More details and agenda will be available soon on the ATI website.
