Turing Knowledge Cafe: 15th September 2022

One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century for western societies with an ageing population, is to consider how to maintain a high standard of health and well-being. One solution is the use of intelligent assistive robots for use in the health and social care sector.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) – the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence – has become a key element of these robots. All AI models are trained and evaluated using data.

Horizon is delighted to be supporting this event, which is being hosted at the Cobot Maker Space on Jubilee campus at the University of Nottingham. The event will provide visitors an opportunity to see some assistive robots in action and to participate in a discussion about the benefits and risks of these robots – in particular how personal data is used and how General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and AI regulation attempt to minimise these risks.  Early regisration is recommended.

This event is organised as part of the Alan Turing Institute Network, the EPSRC Emergence Network and the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute and hosted by the Cyber-physical Health and Assistive Robotics Technologies Research Group at the University of Nottingham.
