In the context of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing and the Embassy of Portugal in Zagreb are co-organizing the event "Robotics and AI in Society: Impacts and Questions Raised".
The event will take place on the 20th of May 2021, starting at 4 PM, in a hybrid form - online, and for the limited number of attendees at FER. Please join us online via the MS Teams, and on Sli.do for questions. The program of the event is available here.
This event is related to the priorities of the Portuguese Presidency, in particular to the priority of fostering Europe’s recovery leveraged by the climate and digital transitions. The goal is to showcase how robotics can be useful for the citizens and to discuss the implications of the introduction of robotics and AI in large sectors of society/workplace.
After the short welcome speeches from H.E. the Ambassador of Portugal, Ms. Paula Leal da Silva, and the FER’s Dean, Prof. Gordan Gledec, Ph.D., the event will continue with the lectures given by Prof. Pedro Lima, Ph.D., from the Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon and by Tomislav Bracanović, Ph.D., from the Institute of Philosophy, Zagreb.
Their lectures, "Positive impacts of Robotics/AI in society" and "Artificial intelligence among social animals", will raise key issues and serve as the starting point for the "Roundtable on the impacts and questions raised by the introduction of Robotics and AI in society", where professors from FER, Jan Šnajder, Ph.D., and Stjepan Bogdan, Ph.D., will join Prof. Pedro Lima and Tomislav Bracanović in the discussion. The moderator of the round table will be the Vice Dean for Research, Prof. Nikola Mišković.
