INCLUSIVE ROBOTIC CYCLE AND BRAIN-MACHINE TECHNOLOGIES
September 11 - September 12
Robotics and brain-machine interfaces are part of these disruptive technologies that are developing at great speed and whose potential for transforming society is enormous. At the same time, they open up promising opportunities in areas such as medicine, work, care, administration… they raise important ethical, legal and political questions. In this cycle that we are starting now, following the exhibition Hello, Robot, we will tackle questions such as what ethics are needed for this new scenario, how to develop inclusive, sustainable and socially responsible technologies, how these disruptive technologies affect the self-understanding of human beings, or what consequences they will have on the labour market, among others.
With the collaboration of the European projects H2020:
INBOTS (Inclusive Robotics for a Better Society): www.inbots.eu
EXTEND (Bidirectional Hyper-Connected Neural System): www.extend-project.eu
