Knowledge Cafe: Discuss how assistive robots can and should use your data

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.

This Knowledge Café – aimed at members of the general public – will provide an opportunity to see some assistive robots in action and participate in a discussion about the benefits and risks of these robots. The event will address how your data is used and how General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and AI regulation attempt to minimise these risks.  Early registration is recommended.

We are delighted to be supporting this event along with the EMERGENCE Network Alan Turing Institute Network on the 30th June at the Cobot Maker Space, University of Nottingham.
