For a Human-Centered AI

Would you let a robot treat you?

May 9, 2018

Wednesday, May 9 at MUSE "Science at 6 o'clock" returns: the series of science happy hours featuring researchers from the University of Trento, Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Edmund Mach Foundation and MUSE - with the coordination of the Autonomous Province of Trento - called to discuss with the public on current scientific topics

The fourth event will revolve around a topic that involves – more or less directly – each of us: the applications of artificial intelligence and robotics in medicine. The topic will be addressed both from the scientific and technological standpoint, with Fondazione Bruno Kessler researcher Giuseppe Jurman, and from the ethical-legal one, which will be further explored by Carlo Casonato, a full professor at the University of Trento. The interesting and delicate aspects that will be discussed are many: the practical advantages of the use of artificial intelligence in medicine, but also the ethical and legal boundaries – existing and non-existing – within which doctors, scientists and patients are called to move.

The format of the event includes a brief talk, to start a discussion with the public, in a relaxed and informal setting. As on the previous occasions, participants will be offered refreshments. All at MUSE, starting as always at 6.00 pm.

In the first three meetings – which had a big audience – the discussions focused on the use of glyphosate in agriculture, the coming of insects in our diet and sustainable mobility. After the event scheduled for next Wednesday, the series will end with the last two events: Monday, May 28, Francesca Cagnacci from the Mach Foundation, Amy Murphy from Fondazione Bruno Kessler and Simone Tenan from MUSE will talk about the monitoring of mammals in the Alps. Wednesday, June 6, we will talk about climate change with Valeria Lancioni from MUSE and Emanuele Eccel from the Mach Foundation.
