SEptember 23th 2022 - Robotics and AI. From Research to Society

8.30 - 9.00

Welcome. Introduction. Roberto Galeazzi. Inese Podgaiska. Marianne andersen

9.15 - 9.40

cristina andersson. CEO Develor. AI & robotics for sustainability - how technology can help fight the climate crisis and create positive impacts. Ideas and examples.

Major development trends, such as digitalisation and the fight against climate change, affect the operations of every company. Digitalisation, AI & Robotics can contribute to the green transition, but the themes are not automatically linked in a sustainable way. When talking about a green transition, in addition to reducing the negative effects alone, we should move on to talking about an active handprint, how companies make a positive social and ecological impact with the help of technologies.


9.40 - 10.40

Margrethe Vestager. Commissioner for competition and executive vice-president of the european commission

Artificial Intelligence is bringing great benefits to our lives, and we’ve only seen the beginning of it. As we speak, it is saving lives thanks to better diagnosis. It is contributing to deliver on our Green Deal by helping farmers to optimise their resources. It is even supporting engineers to rebuild the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The potential is enormous. Those examples illustrate what we want AI in Europe to be: a force for progress. To make that possible, we need to build trust in AI systems.We can only reap the full benefits of AI’s societal and economic potential if we trust we can mitigate the associated risks. So our proposed legal framework doesn’t look at AI technology itself. Instead, it looks at how AI is used, and what for. Because an ecosystem of trust goes hand in hand with an ecosystem of excellence. So the Commission’s proposal for regulation, on the one hand, addresses the human and societal risks associated with specific uses of AI. This is to create trust. On the other hand, our coordinated plan outlines the necessary steps that Member States should take to boost investments and innovation. To guarantee excellence. All this, to ensure that we strengthen the uptake of AI across Europe.

4 startups at any level: from early development to growth stage 

Tommy Ertbølle. AgriRobot. The number of agricultural robots is growing fast to solve the problem of labor shortage and increasing demand for sustainable food production for a growing world population. AgriRobot helps your new or existing agricultural self-propelled vehicle to become autonomous, without the need for an operator to continuously monitor the robot in the field.

Sara Lopez. Yuman. Addressing one of the major challenges facing healthcare: the nursing shortage. The goal of Yuman is to free up nurses from simple but time-consuming tasks so they can focus instead on care tasks that require a human touch. To achieve this, Yuman create innovative robots that assist nurses as “transport buddies” that can automate the transport of food, medicine and laundry in hospital wards. They are addressing robotics from a fresh and innovative perspective, developing a solution that can solve real problems and help improve everyone’s lives in collaboration with nurses and different Danish Hospitals.

Ulrik Max Nielsen. Plan2Fly is a plug and play solution that gather and facilitate all processes related to a drone task in one place – from planning to implementing to after work with drone data. The platform makes it easy to use drone technology even if you have no knowledge or experience with drone technology. Whether you are a dealer, you buy drone services, or if you are a drone pilot or a freelance data worker, all processes are automised into one platform så that there are experts in all parts of the work process. Plan2Fly connects all partners and makes it possible for the customer only with few click to order a product which normally needs coordinating with several partners and is time consuming. It is an easy ( API) integrable solution for all businesses that wish increased digitalization. 

Cristina Andersson. Airawise Oy offers a tool, that works for managing sustainable development even in a small company. With it, sustainable development can be compared, managed and developed. In addition, the results of the tool can be used in tenders, customer relations, supplier chain evaluations, and financing and investor matters.

MIA Dand. CEO & Founder. Lighthouse3, Building the Tech futures we wantwomen in ai ethics

Prejudicial notions about who is an “expert” have led to a critical diversity gap in the tech industry. These biases lead to flawed technology solutions, which further exacerbate gender and socio-economic inequities. As the founder of Women in AI Ethics, a global organization with a mission to increase representation, Mia Dand challenges the harmful stereotypes and tropes that are rampant in this space. Mia has led hundreds of technology projects, educational events, and conversations over the past decade as part of her effort to democratize access to emerging technologies. In her thought-provoking talk, Mia will inspire the audience to reimagine the tech industry as a diverse and inclusive space without artificial boundaries or techno-elite gatekeepers. She will share the vital role of lived experiences in developing human-centric solutions and the urgent need for more multi-disciplinary perspectives in technology development. Join Mia as she maps out new pathways into the AI & emerging tech space and helps us visualize our collective roles in building the tech futures we want.

Mia Dand, CEO and founder of Lighthouse3, advises global organizations on responsible innovation at scale with emerging technologies. She is exceptionally skilled and experienced at leading large scale technology programs with cross-functional teams at the intersection of technology, business, and governance.
For over a decade, Mia has hosted 100+ virtual and in-person tech events to democratize and expand access to new technologies for folks outside of the big tech-academia bubble. She hosts educational events and informative Twitter chats (@MiaD) to raise awareness about ethical issues in AI and highlight the work of BIPOC experts in this space.
Mia is also the founder of Women in AI Ethics™ global community dedicated to increasing recognition, representation, and empowerment of talented women in this space. She created the first ‘100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics list in 2018, which is now published annually, and funded an online directory as a helpful resource for hiring managers and AI conference organizers to recruit more diverse talent.
Mia is on the Selection Committee for Anita Borg ABIE Social Impact award committee and on the Advisory Board for Carnegie Council’s Artificial Intelligence & Equality Initiative. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, and Venture Beat.

Lazaros Nalpantidis. Professor.
DTU´s focus on autonomous systems & Introduction to ASTAs


DTU is gathering its research competences in robotics, AI, perception and telecommunication to pave the way towards the Autonomous Systems in the future. In this talk, Lazaros will present how DTU is pushing the boundaries of research ( multiple ambitious research projects and a dedicated DTU Centre for Collaborative Autonomous Systems), education ( new MSc in Autonomous Systems) and state-of-the-art facilities ( DTU Autonomous Systems Test Arena – one of 3 in the world for robots in the air, on the ground and under water) to realize the full potential of autonomous systems for the benefit of a more sustainable and human-friendly society.

We will get a short intro to the new Autonomous Systems Test Arena ASTA ( 5 min video about it presented by Associate professor Matteo Fumagalli) 

ASTA: DTU offers a world-class integrated infrastructure for testing cutting edge innovations and new knowledge for ground, aerial and marine autonomous systems. The facility is the hub where research, innovation and education meet with industry to trigger new scientific questions, foster take-up of scientific advancements, develop industry-academia collaborations and provide means for testing and demonstrating innovations in the field of autonomous systems. 

12.30 - 13.00

Visit the new autonomous systems test arena at dtu

From 12.30 PM you are wellcome to visit the new Autonomous Systems Test Arena at DTU that opened in the autumn 2020. Christian Andersen will introduce you to the building – he will tell about the site and you can ask questions. 
We will show you the way when we finish – to ASTA. ASTA is one of few places in the world where robots in the air, on the ground and underwater can be tested in the same building
