EIT Digital is organising a Lunch talk with Dr. Alonso Vera from NASA in Helsinki, Finland.
Dr. Alonso Vera - "Toward Human Autonomy Teaming"
Research and development in the area of intelligent systems is progressing but is it moving in the right direction? Are we primarily working on systems designed to replace humans rather than team with humans, and does it matter? There is good evidence at this point that when we develop intelligent systems without attending to how they will interact with humans, operational costs actually increase rather than decrease.
Registration for this event is closed. Kindly contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join the waiting list.
