Morten Jacobsen is using technology including robotics to help children with special needs to have a better experience in school. Come and hear his own experience. Morten is a professional speaker who is very enthusiastic about implementing technology that can help him in his daily work. Very inspiring and an interesting story from ”real life” about how technology can help children with special needs. Disruptive technologies in an educational perspective Skolen ved Nordens plads. Experience using technology in schools. K12 school for children with special needs. How can telepresence robots and Virtual reality improve quality of life for students that can’t attend school due to physical or mental illness?

Per Sjoborg, Host of Robots in Depth: the video interview show with everyone in robotics will attend with his studio to make interesting interviews during the days. Contact Marianne Andersen firstname.lastname@example.org if you could be interested in making an interview. Per is founder of Aptomica that rents, trades, sells modular robotics, anything you need Dream, Rent, Build!
This is one of the interviews he did at the first RoboInsights conference in Elsinore 2018:
Cristina Andersson will tell us about the Finish experience and how is Finland is Taking a Leap in Welfare with the Help of AiRo. The Finnish National AiRo Program for Welfare is a strategic program that aims for sustainable and ethical implementation of artificial intelligence and robotics in the healthcare and social sectors. Also read the blog under NEWS by Cristina Andersson.

Silvia Tolu, phD and researcher in bio-robotics will present the big and very prestitious project: The Human Brain Project that aims to put in place a cutting-edge research infrastructure that will allow scientific and industrial researchers to advance our knowledge in the fields of neuroscience, computing, and brain-related medicine.
Neuro-robotics: connecting body, environment and brain. Understanding the brain is a challenge that more than 100 research institutions in Europe are trying to achieve in the framework of one of the two largest scientific projects ever funded by the European union, the 10-years project called: The Human Brain.
This project aims to map the human brain and create an ICT-based research infrastructure to help advance neuroscience, medicine and computing. Among 13 sub-projects, the tenth is dedicated to Neuro-robotics in which researchers have created a platform for linking virtual brain models and simulated robot bodies.
The main goal of the team at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is to get new insights into the brain’s connections ant its interactions with the body and surroundings, so that the brain is not only understood as a closed, abstract entity. We will discuss the brain and body relationship, and its importance on AI and robotics.
Our approach is exemplified by bio-mimetic modular control architectures based on cerebellar internal models concept and machine learning optimisation that lead to a real-time control system. The system has been tested on different robotic platforms under both manipulation, visual, and locomotion tasks.
This will be the state-of-the-art for more complex bio-inspired control architectures for neuro-robotics towards emulating the central nervous system functioning in motor control and learning.

Ole Ravn is Head of Automation and Control, Professor in Intelligent Robotics at Technical University of Denmark. He will introduce us to some of the interesting projects going on at DTU and also what robotics is use for in general.

Thomas Bolander, PhD, is a professor at DTU Compute, where he does research in logic and artificial intelligence (AI). His research focuses primarily on social aspects of AI, that is, how to make future computers, smartphones and robots socially intelligent, so they can also start to understand a bit of how we humans think. The goal is to create computers and robots that can interact socially competent and flexibly with humans and other robots.

Martin Mose Bentzen
Martin Mose Bentzen is an associate professor at the Technical University of Denmark where he teaches philosophy of science and ethics in engineering. He has a background in philosophy and wrote his PhD dissertation about deontic logic. Bentzen currently researches philosophical aspects of social robotics, in particular the possibility of devising logical systems for ethical robots. One of his research projects is HERA (Hybrid Ethical Reasoning Agents). The goal of this project is to provide novel, theoretically well-founded and practically usable machine ethics tools for implementation in physical and virtual moral agents such as (social) robots and software bots. The research approach is to use advances in formal logic and modelling as a bridge between artificial intelligence and recent work in analytical ethics and political philosophy.

RoboInsights created something rare: room for interdisciplinary discussion. We talked about life, about robots, and about the future…. And most importantly, what is the role that we play in all this picture. I am definitely coming next edition.
